Check section "3.1.1 Parameter Field" of the JCL Reference Manual:

Hi,

There are symbolic and keyword parameters.

Positional parameters
1) Appear in a pre-determined sequence.
2) Omitted parameters indicated by commas.
3) No comma to be coded if all the following positional parameters are omitted or only keyword parameters follow.

TIME=(10,30)
The system knows the specified time--10 minutes, 30 seconds?by each value's relative position

Keyword parameters

1)Predetermined words or keywords used.
2)Any sequence is permitted, separated by commas.
3)Format <keyword parameter> = <value>

//MYJOB JOB (PROJ,TRG,TRG10,N1,BATCH),'PGM1',
// MSGCLASS=X,NOTIFY=TRGG10,TYPRUN=SCAN

Here MSGCLASS, NOTIFY etc are keyword parameters.
