In recent years, the number of cell phones in society has increased drastically and they are getting popular due to their computational ability and adaptability. Resource provisioning is important, but still remains NP-hard problem in mobile computational grid (MCG). Once the jobs are assigned to the MCG, the main challenge is how to identify the correct resource according to the job's requirement and use them to execute the sub-jobs. The heuristic methods such as Min-Min, Max-Min, and HEFT can be used to select appropriate resources from the MCG that is assigned for job execution. Since the computational nodes are static and mobile in nature, the performance of such heuristics is not as expected. Such heuristics suffers from low throughput and low speedup. The process of localization is used in a wireless sensor network with good results. The proposed model uses heuristics and localization process for optimizing the quality of service parameter localization, normalized speedup, and throughput in MCG, with the concept of grid nodes available in MCG. The observation shows significant improvement in the quality of service parameter localization, normalized speedup, and throughput in MCG. The proposed model HGLA and MIN-MIN, MAX-MIN, and HEFT are compared with respect to localization, speedup, and throughput. The results reveal that the proposed model shows better performance over MIN-MIN, MAX-MIN, and HEFT.
