The ID ( information developers ) are much better at explaining things
here is a pointer to the idcams manual

I had read the manual but could not really capture that's why I posted this question.

But does REPRO do them better or make life easier ?

If you EXPORT a cluster you do not need to know the VSAM definitions to recreate it using IMPORT.

IMPORT / EXPORT is the standard method for catalog backups and recoveries.

REPRO should not be used with RRDS as it may damage the internal structure of the file when using REPRO to restore from a backup.

That's my initial thoughts, but I am sure there are other reasons.
