HI,

Job

A job is a collection of related job steps. A job is identified by a JOB statement.

TASK

Tasks are performed through the job control statements, which consist of:
JCL statements

Are you asking about jobs versus started tasks ?

Another view of a task is a segment of executable code that was assigned a TCB (Task Control Block) by the operating system (probably the Task Scheduler, if memory serves {less and less likely these days}).

Hello,

If you post the requirements for your paper, we may be able to offer better information/suggestions.

When you were given the requirement, i expect there was some agreement of what is a job and what is a task.

If you post what you know "going in", it may help us help you.
