Abstract: In distributed computing environment, efficient task scheduling is essential to obtain high performance. A vital role of designing and development of task scheduling algorithms is to achieve better makes pan. Several task scheduling algorithms have been developed for homogeneous and heterogeneous distributed computing systems. In this paper, a new static task scheduling algorithm is proposed namely; Leveled DAG Critical Task First (LDCTF) that optimizes the performance of Leveled DAG Prioritized Task (LDPT) algorithm to efficiently schedule tasks on homogeneous distributed computing systems. LDPT was compared to B-level algorithm which is the most famous algorithm in homogeneous distributed systems and it provided better results. LDCTF is a list based scheduling algorithm which depends on sorting tasks into a list according to their priority then scheduling one by one on the suitable processor. LDCTF aims to improve the performance of the system by minimizing the schedule length than LDPT and B-level algorithms.
