Definitions for "Instruction scheduling"
An optimization technique that reorders instructions in code to minimize execution time.
(n.) a strategy of a compiler to analyse the outcome of the operations specified in a program and to issue instructions in an optimal manner. That is, the instructions are not necessarily issued in the order specified by the programmer, but in an order that optimally uses the registers, functional units and memory paths of the computer, while at the same time guaranteeing correct results for the computation.
the relocation of independent instructions in order to maximize instruction-level parallelism (and/or minimize instruction stalls). [SILC99
