A novel dynamic scheduling scheme that supports task unbiased structure approach is proposed for multiprocessor networks. The significance of proposed scheduling scheme is remedying the communication overhead, delay in task execution and in efficient processor utilization and hence improves the total execution time. The proposed algorithm is implemented on a set of processors known as nodes which are linked through certain interconnection network. In particular, the recital is appraised for a linear kind of multiprocessor interconnection network known as Linear Crossed Cube (LCQ) multiprocessor system. In addition, a comparison is also made by implementing the same algorithm on other similar standard multiprocessor systems. The performance is examined with regards to the performance indexed known as Load Imbalance Factor (LIF), which corresponds to the variant of load among processors. The comparative simulation research reveals that the proposed scheme provides more advantageous performance in terms of task scheduling on numerous linear along with on cube-based multiprocessor networks.
