Basics as below:

Create a held batch job for the routine in question. Look in /tmp/batchd
and find a set of files describing the job such as  ldaBAAa25449,
parmBAAa25449,EnvBAAa25449. Copy these out of the way somewhere and
delete the batch job in BPCS. It would be sensible to rename these as
well so you can readilt identify their purpose but leave the lda, parm
and Env prefixes. To run the job via cron you will need to export all
the variables defined in the Env script substituting OSINITLDA,
OSINITPARM & OSINITSCRIPT with the name & location of your files. Also
BPCSLOGFILE if you want separate reporting. After setting the
environment you need to run:

oreloader -p sysovrc -P /tmp/batchd/parmxxxxxxx
 
This can then be run through cron if required.

Be aware that variable parameters such as dates will require some
manipulation of the parm file as part of this process
