Why not submit the job at the correct time ?

Do you not have a scheduling system at your shop ?

Our requirement is job should be executed only when there is a request and that too after a fixed period. Thats why I am searching for some parameters that could help me in doing so.

I would like that the people who defined such requirement show ...
from a statistical, technical and resource consumption point of view

the difference between
/silly mathematical notation on
exec = submit + delta

for delta = 0 and delta > 0

I have been facing and solved many time the issue of batching end user requests
( i.e. all the end user submitted jobs run in a specified window time )

but thi is the most strange requirement I' ve heard

Well, i suppose the users could send an e-mail when they have a request. An "appointment" could then be made on some desktop calendar raising an alert when "it is time". Then the job could be submitted to run.

Kind of far-fetched, but makes as much sense as creating some sub-standard scheduling process.

What business requirement dictates that the already working scheduling procesds could not be used?

As Enrico said - strange requirement . . .
