A Supervisory schedule forces a machine to perform batch processing for a non-recurring period of time. This type of schedule, like the Periodic schedule, is optional. If you have a Supervisory schedule active for a period of time, the machine performs batch processing according to that schedule before it references the Periodic or Default schedules.
For example, you could force a machine to perform only Vectorize batch processing for the next four hours, ignoring any other scheduled type of batch processing during that time.
A Supervisory schedule consists of a list of batch processing jobs for which you must define a start and end date and time. Each job has its own set of batch processing parameters that are independent of the other jobs in the schedule.
