We've added two mechanisms that give better estimates of result completion time (and thus better scheduling and fewer missed deadlines): 1) we track the 'CPU efficiency': the average fraction of CPU time that BOINC apps receive while they're running (this can be less than one on systems that run compute-intensive tasks other than BOINC); 2) we dynamically maintain a per-project upper bound on the ratio of actual CPU time to predicted CPU time.
