You have to actually write something, so you need a real program - SORT, IEBGENER, IEBUPDTE, whatever you feel like using.

As MrSpock says, you have to use a program that will write some data into the PDS, for example -
//INITPDS EXEC PGM=IEBGENER
//SYSPRINT DD  SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN    DD  DUMMY
//SYSUT2   DD  DSN=newpds(member),...
//SYSUT1   DD  *
Data for a new PDS member
/*

JCL like this will allocate the PDS, but it won't write anything to it.
//ALLOCPDS EXEC PGM=IEFBR14
//NEWPDS   DD  DISP=(NEW,CATLG),DSN=pdsname(member),...

MrSpock gave a list of "standard" programs you can use, though there are many more programs, including programs that you write or have already written.

And remember, DISP is for the data set, NOT for the member.
