As a user of TWS, you know how important this system is for the planning, automation, and control of your batch processing. With perhaps thousands of jobs running every night, TWS is critical to the completion of your batch production. However, as projects grow, they become harder and harder to manage. When you are faced with problems, change requests, or simply the need to have TWS information readily available, can you:
• Create net plans to graphically display and print applications, schedules, jobs, dependencies and so on?
• Easily view the entire batch production or even selected portions of it?
• Automatically create documentation of your application description?
• Create and print the results of your run cycles and run rules in a timetable showing one whole year at a glance?
• Search every data field in your application description with functions similar to DB2, using "or, and, equal, not equal, greater than, less than" operators?
• Display all predecessors and successors?
• Automatically create batch loader statements from your application description?
• Modify your TWS database definitions graphically? (For example, delete, create or modify applications, operations, schedules, dependencies or special resources?)
• Provide additional information to users, operators, customers, managers, controllers and so on?
• Print or plot net plans in black and white, gray shades or color?
• Monitor your zOS production?
With TWS/Graph you can do all of this and much more besides!
