DCS Eliminates Date Parameter Setup
The Date Control System (DCS) is an automated calendaring and date parameter setup system that slashes daily JOB setup time and greatly reduces production reruns. DCS completely automates and eliminates the error prone manual process of setting up job parameter date cards. DCS provides direct access to DCS production calendars from programs written for CICS, Batch, or ISPF.

Additionally, DCS aids programmers by providing common access to numerous complex date calculation and conversion routines, including those utilizing fiscal and holiday calendars, saving hours of redundant coding and testing. The DCS package includes interfaces to both ISPF and CICS.

DCS is very easy to install, configure, and use! The learning curve for system administrators and users is very short; usage is highly intuitive and self-explanatory; extensive online help screens and tutorials are available with a single key stroke.
