What scheduling software does your shop have?

What system automation?

Jobs can be started at IPL time via system parameters -- these are called started tasks. Depending upon the site and its software, batch jobs may be possible to submit at IPL time as well. However, there is no system software to automatically submit a job -- that is the whole purpose of having a scheduling system such as Tivoli or CA-7.

I'm not sure if this is what is being asked, but there are automation products that will submit a job (i.e. when a particular message is written to the console) . . .

See if this provides info that you can use: ... voli/SWK30
Hope this helps,
