The performance of Round robin CPU scheduling algorithm is entirely dependent on the time quantum selected. This paper describes a new method to calculate the time quantum without user intervention by finding the relationship between the burst times of all processes in the ready queue using a similarity measure known as the Euclidean distance. Similarity measure is used to find patterns in the burst times of processes present in the ready queue.
