This study presents the Priority based ranking of jobs and resources to improve the Makespan in the grid scheduling problem. Grid environment’s effectiveness largely depends on scheduler’s effectiveness/efficiency as they act as local resource brokers. The scheduler is responsible to select resources/scheduling jobs so that users/application requirements are met regarding overall execution time (throughput) and the resources use cost. The scheduler selects resources that suit user imposed constraints/conditions like CPU usage, RAM available/disk storage. Resource/Jobs are selected using WPR algorithm which improves in performance like Makespan. Results are compared with Round Robin/Weighted Round Robin algorithms where the proposed method has better performance.
