Abstract: Grid computing, emerging as a new paradigm for next-generation computing, enables the sharing, selection, and aggregation of geographically distributed heterogeneous resources for solving large-scale problems in science, engineering, and commerce. The resources in the Grid are heterogeneous and geographically distributed. The paper demonstrates the capability of economic-based systems for wide-area parallel and distributed computing by using auction-oriented approach. In this paper combinatorial auction has been discussed. This auction model allows biders to bid on various attributes beyond the price .The overall utility of a deal for the buyer must consider a combination of the different attributes. This model has also been implemented. The auctioneer selects winners based on the price as well as on other attributes.
