Series Concept

Data Processing Production Coordinators perform or supervise the scheduling, coordination, and preparation of programs and data for submission to a computer; and perform other related duties as required. Duties performed in this series typically require an understanding of Job Control Language, file control, scheduling of computer input and output data, and the editing of input and output data for accuracy and conformance to specifications.

The Data Processing Production Coordinator series consists of three levels with the distinction between levels based on the complexity of the job control functions and the degree of supervision exercised.

Class Concepts

Principal Data Processing Production Coordinator

Under general supervision incumbents supervise at least 3 or more full-time- equivalent Data Processing Production Coordinators; coordinate with departmental and other users the scheduling of production jobs for processing on the computer or unit record equipment; and are assigned responsibility for planning the work schedules of employees supervised. Incumbents may perform sorting and listing steps in the final preparation of data for submission to the computer; may monitor and check data for correct format including preparation of data, program decks, and job control cards for submission to the computer; may monitor and maintain data files, data sets, master files on disc and tape, updating and deleting as necessary; may check output for correctness and distribution as required; may coordinate pickup up and delivery of input and output; and may consult with users concerning deck structure.
