I second Al Macs question. 

One of my customers at one point was complaining that inventory
transactions were always way behind. They were submitting one job for
each inventory transaction. Even on a large system the jobq was often
thousands deep and hours behind.  Changing to *DTAQ logic in this case
vaporized the backlog. The problem was the 'expense' of starting the
job, opening the files, doing one thing, closing the files, terminating
the job.  The actual doing of the thing was probably only 1% of the work
in each job.
