In multi-programming systems i.e. in systems where several processes reside in memory, organization of processes is very important so that CPU always has one to execute. CPU scheduling is the base of multiprogramming operating systems. CPU executes one process at a time and switches between processes to improve CPU utilization. CPU scheduling strategies help in selecting the next process to be executed by the CPU. CPU scheduling is one of the most important activities performed by operating system which helps in increasing the throughput of the computer system therefore if the performance of scheduling will improve then the authors' computer system will become more productive.
