      This paper presents an investigation into the optimal scheduling of realtime tasks of a multiprocessor system using hybrid genetic algorithms (GAs). A comparative study of heuristic approaches such as `Earliest Deadline First (EDF)¿ and `Shortest Computation Time First (SCTF)¿ and genetic algorithm is explored and demonstrated. The results of the simulation study using MATLAB is presented and discussed. Finally, conclusions are drawn from the results obtained that genetic algorithm can be used for scheduling of real-time tasks to meet deadlines, in turn to obtain high processor utilization.
