  1. Use formal change control procedures for planning and scheduling processing activities. Gain authorisation for the initial schedules and changes to these schedules.
  2. Ensure that the scheduling of batch jobs takes into consideration business requirements, priorities, conflicts between jobs and workload balancing. Put procedures in place to identify, investigate and approve departures from standard job schedules.
  3. Define and implement a procedure to resolve and correct job failures.
  4. Implement automated tools and processes to immediately notify and rectify critical processing failures.
