Concepts

Before work began on developing the BICsuite Enterprise Job Scheduling System, a huge number of varying problem scenarios drawn from practical experiences gained on major projects were analysed and broken down to their conceptual core. The product of this process is a comparatively small number of simple, easily understandable concepts that can be applied for fulfilling all the functional requirements required of an Enterprise Job Scheduling System. The concepts featured in the BICsuite Enterprise Job Scheduling System are:

  • Exit states
  • Batch and job hierarchies
  • Dependencies
  • Resources
  • Triggers
  • Hierarchically structured workflow environments

Streamline concepts for streamline solutions

All tasks that arise in daily practice can be simply, comprehensibly and robustly handled by utilising these concepts and making full use of their interoperability. This has the following advantages:

  • Simple and standardised solutions
  • Improved maintenance and portability
  • Short initial training times due to the steep learning curve
