     Scheduling relates to the field of computer science and represents the method by which data flows, threads and processes are given access to a system's resources. The following explains each term you asked about, thereby differentiating one from the others.




          
    • Long term scheduling: which determines which programs are admitted to the system for execution and when, and which ones should be exited.

    •     
    • Medium term scheduling: which determines when processes are to be suspended and resumed;

    •     
    • Short term scheduling (or dispatching): which determines which of the ready processes can have CPU resources, and for how long.
