The convoy effect can be explained using a real-life example. In reality, when a convoy vehicle passes the street carrying a load, other vehicles needing to cross might have to wait for it to completely pass, due to the length of the convoy. In the First come first serve CPU scheduling algorithm, the jobs that arrive first and are loaded into the CPU for execution, if a job with a long burst time is first on the queue, using the FCFS algorithm, this job will be loaded first and would then result in a long wait of the other processes that have not been executed. This is known as the convoy effect in the operating system.
