For fibers and resins, a quantity of material formed during the same process and having identical characteristics throughout. For prepregs, laminae, and laminates, material made from one batch of fiber and one batch of resin.
A specific quantity of a drug or other material that is intended to have uniform character and quality, within specified limits, and is produced according to a single manufacturing order during the same cycle of manufacture. [From §210.3(b)(2)
Glass can melted from cullet (ca) or be made from a mixture of chemicals, mostly sand. Batch can be mixed by the worker or bought. Most commonly used bought batch is from Spruce Pine Batch Co., Highway 19E, P. O. Box 159, Spruce Pine NC 28777, 704-765-9876. Mixing batch requires care as many ingredients are poisonous or lung damaging.
A specific quantity of material produced in a process (or series of processes) and expected to be homogeneous within specified limits. The batch size may be defined either by fixed quantity or the amount produced in a fixed time interval. In the case of continuous production, a batch may correspond to a defined fraction of the production characterized by its intended homogeneity.
The unit or quantity of production in one complete operation in making a paint product. The volume which constitutes a batch in converting the raw materials into the finished product is called “Batch Size” that is, 50 gallon batch, 300-gallon batch, etc.
The component of raw materials properly weighed, proportioned, and mixed for delivery to a processing unit. Also, the product output from a processing unit in which there is essentially no product output until all component materials are charged and processed.
an identifiable collection of products or quantity of materials, of a single type, grade, class, size, or composition produced in the same facility under essentially the same conditions and at essentially the same time.
In systems, batch processing is an approach that accumulates data and processes it as a group: the opposite of real time. Often refers to programs that run at a fixed later time. In manufacturing production, a quantity scheduled to be produced together; also called a lot.
means a specific quantity of a dietary ingredient or dietary supplement that is intended to meet specifications for identity, purity, quality, strength, and composition, and is produced during a specified time period according to a single manufacturing record during the same cycle of manufacture. [Definition from Proposed Rule: Current Good Manufacturing Practice in Manufacturing, Packing, or Holding Dietary Ingredients and Dietary Supplements; 68 FR 12251
A quantity of one type of crude pumped within a pipeline. Often different types of crude oils or products, known as “batches,” are pumped in front of or behind one another within the same pipeline. Depending on the physical characteristics of the crude or products, the batches may stay relatively separate or mix (commingle) as they travel within the pipeline. Batch sizes can vary between a few hundred barrels to hundreds of thousands of barrels.
Batch is the raw materials that are melted into glass. The process of melting batch is called charging and is quite time-consuming; our furnace requires about 9 hours to cook the batch until it is relatively bubble-free.
1. The quantity of material required for or produced by a production operation at a single time. 2. An amount of material that undergoes some unit chemical process or physical mixing operation to make the final product homogeneous or uniform. 3. A group of similar computer transactions joined together for processing as a single unit.
An entity that represents the production at any point in the process. A batch is a running control recipe. The material that is being produced or that has been produced by a single execution of a recipe is also considered a batch.
The chemicals that comprise glazes are not mixed with formulas. Formulas are exact, repeatable and predictable. Glazes are mixed with recipes. This is because, the minerals and chemicals used are inconsistant in quality and vary from one bag to the next. When the components of a glaze are weighed and ready to mixed, the result is a "batch" of glaze. Preformance of hand mixed glazes is somewhat unpredictable. Quality from batch to batched, mixed from the same recipe, can can vary. Each batch may require a little chemical tweeking to make it work as desired.
a group of records or data, sometimes but not always necessarily related. Databases on mainframe computers perform data operations in batches. "Batch processes" refer to those affecting more than one record at a time.
A collection of transactions that have been made in a single day. Most terminals and real-time processors will collect all of the transactions and then do a batch at the end of day, instead of batching them throughout the day.
A lot of a certain commodity like a component or a product that is treated, recognized and identified as one individual entity with respect to operations like handling, processing, purchasing, production, storage, transport.
"Depending on the institution this definition may have slightly different meanings. Generally it is a form of capture separation. Some institutions capture in ""runs"" and the term ""batch"" is used synonymously. In some systems the ""run"" represents a particular body of work such as an entire days worth of captures and the batch is the individual captures for that day."
1. n. An accumulation of data to be processed. 2. n. A group of records or data processing jobs brought together for processing or transmission. 3. n. Pertaining to activity involving little or no user action.
A batch or batchfile is (usually in DOS) a sequence of command to be execute. Usually to automate a repetitive task. Usually these files have the extension ".bat" (most famous one being AUTOEXEC.BAT). Now a days we rather talk about Scripts.
a method of processing that involves the processing of several transactions and does not necessarily require instantaneous response. Batch processing is especially suited to entering or retrieving large volumes of data from the enterprise data base. (See Interactive, Processing Method, and Transaction).
A batch is a set of Transact-SQL statements that are submitted together and executed as a group. Use a GO statement in SQL Query Analyzer and the osql utility to signal the end of a batch. The scope of user-defined variables is limited to a batch. Statements which must run in seperate batches: CREATE PROCEDURE CREATE VIEW CREATE TRIGGER CREATE RULE CREATE DEFAULT
A group of transactions made by a Merchant during a specific period of time, usually one business day. Batches may include payment authorization requests, payment capture requests, or credit reversal requests. Transactions in the batch are electronically sent by the merchant to the acquiring bank for action.
A method of processing a series of commands on a computer with no human interaction. Typically, a list of commands is placed within a file, and then that file is executed. Cluster CoNTroller provides batch access to the CTC cluster resources.
A group of cases for which no assumptions are made about how the cases are selected. A batch may be a population, a probability sample, or a nonprobability sample, but the data are analyzed as if the origin of the data is not known..
as opposed to interactive processing. In batch processing, a computer does not perform tasks as soon as requested, but groups similar jobs together into batches and carries them out together at some later time (e.g. overnight). Interactive processing allows the user to issue an instruction and have it carried out more or less instantly.
In the imaging process as we do it, the grouping of books, photographs, or other objects into an organizational unit for our reference only. Each collection has its own distinct series of batch number assignments.
A collection of transactions that are processed as a group. The iCat Commerce Online Payment Service allows you to batch orders for authorization or for capture. Your transactions may in turn be batched for daily settlement by Visa or MasterCard.
A collection of transactions that have been made in a single day. Rather than batching several times during the day, most terminals and real-time processors collect all of the transactions and submit a batch at the end of day.
A collection of credit card transactions saved for submitting at one time. For merchant account processing, transactions are stored up during working hours and sent to the credit card processor in a batch to be executed at the end-of-day (or other time period).
a collection of transactions that are considered a single unit, for processing purposes Company Header(Batch) Record – records within an ACH file that designate what type of transaction it is and who the originators are for each ACH transaction
A command-line parameter available for some programs in the Wisconsin Package that enables you to run a program as a separate process in a batch queue. The program job may execute immediately as a separate process or may wait in a batch queue to execute at a later time. After you submit a job to batch, your terminal is free for other work. Or, you can log off the computer and your job will still execute. For more information, see "Using the Batch Queue" in Chapter 3, Using Programs.
IEEE] Pertaining to a system or mode of operation in which inputs are collected and processed all at one time, rather than being processed as they arrive, and a job, once started, proceeds to completion without additional input or user interaction. Contrast with conversational, interactive, on-line, real time.
A merchant's collection of credit card transactions over a period of time, usually one full day, that are saved for submission to the acquiring bank all at once, usually at the end of each day. Batch fees are charged by acquiring banks as a way of encouraging merchants to submit transactions in a group, rather than one at a time throughout the day.
An accumulation of data brought together for processing or transmission, usually unattended. Less formally, the processing of such data, as opposed to on-line processing where a user is present to respond interactively.
A collection of credit card transactions saved for submitting at one time, usually each day. Merchants who do not have real-time verification systems must submit their transactions manually through a POS terminal. Batch fees are charged to encourage a merchant to submit his or her transactions at one time, rather than throughout the day.
an older type of computer processing, where you enter all your commands first and don't see what happens until later. The computer runs all your commands as a batch and then shows you the results. Batch programs are very powerful for certain tasks, like paginating 200 or 300 page books, but unfashionable today compared to interactive programs, which work the opposite way, showing you every change right away.
A data processing method. Batch processing allows users to submit, for processing as a single unit, commands that request various operations such as program compilation and execution, file manipulation, or utility functions. Such a unit is called a job. Once a job has been submitted no further interaction between the user and the job is necessary. The opposite of Interactive.
or batch processing, is the capability of running jobs outside of the interactive login session. In this document, batch implies a more complex subsystem which provides for additional control over job scheduling and resource contention.
Also known as Batch Settlement File. A group of credit card transactions that have to be settled with the merchants acquiring financial institution. Batches can be submitted for processing throughout the day or continue to grow until their value is sufficiently large enough and worthwhile to process.
A set of commands and operations that are executed in sequence without human supervision. In MS-DOS, a batch file is a text file—such as autoexec.bat—that consists of a list of DOS commands which the computer reads and carries out.
A method of processing a series of commands on a computer with no human interaction. Typically, a list of commands is placed within a file, and then that file is executed. EASY-LL and LoadLeveler are batch systems that run on CTC's IBM SP.
The accumulation of captured credit card transactions in the merchant's terminal or POS awaiting settlement. Capture: The submission of an electronic credit card transaction for financial settlement. Authorized credit card sales must be captured and settled in order for a merchant to receive funds for those sales. Also see Settlement.
A transaction processing method that executes groups of transactions and returns the results, all without human intervention. Contrasts with an interactive system where each request and response executes synchronously.
refers to a way that automatic data collection computers operate. Batch devices run a software application that prompts the user for data. Data is collected and stored in memory or in a data file. At the end of the day, the device is placed in a dock, cradle or otherwise connected to a PC and the stored data is downloaded to the host.
Users specify a query to run in batch if they do not want to stop work to wait for the results. The computer decides when to run the query. Users can go back and look at the results of the query later.
A set of programs which are interdependent, must be run in the correct order and which can only generate the correct result if every program works properly. Rather like trying to throw an uninterrupted string of sixes.
A set of numbers and letters printed on the packaging of film and paper to indicate a production batch. The number is given because of slight variations of colour, contrast and speed which may occur between batches of the same type.
