A heterogeneous computing system provides a variety of different machines, orchestrated to perform an application whose subtasks have diverse execution requirements. The subtasks must be assigned to machines (matching) and ordered for execution (scheduling) such that the overall application execution time is minimized. A new dynamic mapping (matching and scheduling) heuristic called the hybrid remapper is presented here. The hybrid remapper is based on a centralized policy and improves a statically, obtained initial matching and scheduling by remapping to reduce the overall execution time. The remapping is non-preemptive and the execution of the hybrid remapper can be overlapped with the execution of the subtasks. During application execution, the hybrid remapper uses run-time values for the subtask completion times and machine availability times whenever possible. Therefore, the hybrid remapper bases its decisions on a mixture of run-time and expected values. The potential of the hybrid remapper to improve the performance of initial static mappings is demonstrated using simulation studies
