This article describes a simulated annealing based offloading decision with processing time, energy consumption and resource constraints in a Mobile Edge Computing Node. Edge computing mostly deals with mobile devices subject to constraints. Especially because of their limited processing capacity and the availability of their battery, these devices have to offload some of their heavy tasks, which require a lot of calculations. We consider a single mobile device with a list of heavy tasks that can be offloadable. The formulated optimization problem takes into account both the dedicated energy capacity and the total execution time. We proposed a heuristic solution schema. To evaluate our solution, we performed a set of simulation experiments. The results obtained in terms of processing time and energy consumption are very encouraging.
