In hard real-time and embedded multiprocessor system real-world applications, it is very important to strive to minimize the run-time overhead of the scheduler as much as possible, especially in hard real-time and embedded multiprocessor systems with limited processor and system resources. In this paper, we present a method that reduces the worst-case time complexity of the run-time scheduler for re-computing latest start times and for selecting processes for execution on a multiprocessor at run-time to O(n), where n is the number of processes.
