Job Scheduling Across the Globe and Around the Clock


Objectives for selecting the scheduler

According to corporate objectives, a system was needed that could guarantee the effective and efficient operation of business processes. The focus further rested on purchasing high quality at a good price. On-time process control was just as important as transparent visualization of all IT services related to batch processing. The customer also required a system that offered high user-friendliness and short project durations to allow instant use after migrating the mainframe applications.

Solution Based on APX/PCC

The bigger part of the former mainframe applications, including materials management, finances and controlling, disposition, and production control are processed on Unix servers running SAP and APX/PCC. Internal system interfaces make it possible to account for dependencies and events from job workflows in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and Ravensburg, Germany. The daily creation of schedules is a useful method to plan resources, in particular for ad-hoc production applications.


  • High availability and excellent performance
  • On-time execution of all workflows and processes
  • Flexible adjustment to deviations from the plan as implemented by specialist departments
  • Ongoing further development of the tool, resulting in a secure investment
  • User-friendly interfaces for the PCC-GUI
  • Fair license models
  • Professional support and consulting by the supplier
