In this paper, the authors introduce a new CPU scheduling algorithm called time quantum based CPU scheduling algorithm which acts as preemptive based on the arrival time. The algorithm helps to improve the average waiting time of round robin algorithm in real time uni-processor-multi programming operating system. CPU scheduling is the basis of multi-programmed operating system. The scheduler is responsible for multiplexing processes on the CPU. There are many scheduling algorithms available for a multi-programmed operating system like FCFS, SJF, priority, round robin etc.
