Batch processing involved a number of similar products on a production line either being designed or manufactured. Once a batch has been completed, the production line either stops, or another patch starts. Real-time processing is done instantly, and can be referenced to JIT (Just-In-Time) Production used in Business terms. As it consists of completing things "to order".

explain the difference between batch processing and real-time processing

It's Batch Processing,Realtime Processing,On line Processing and Distributed Processing.

The four methods of data processing are batch processing, realtime processing, on line processing and distributed processing.

The main difference in serial and batch processing is that serial processing is done in a specific sequential order while batch processing is not done in any specific order. Batch processing is done a computer with out any manual intervention.

In batch processing the tasks are performed in batches. In time sharing, the operating system shares the time between each task.

Batch processing: collecting jobs in a single batch and then execute them without further interaction what the user. Interactive processing: Allows a program being executed to carry on a dialogue with the user through remote terminals. Requires real-time processing.

In Batch processing data is saved in database but not processed until specific time while in real time processing data is processed immediately as it is provided.

Serial Processing means that the processing that occr sequentially.Results of one action are known before a next action is considered.In the case of batch processing execution of a series of programs or jobs on a computer without mannual intervention.

Differentiate between Simple Batch Operating Systems and Time-sharing Operating Systems

please register me, ihave try but it repuse with username yusuf, email yusufmana, password sokoto52. and please answer me this question now "online, real-time,batch processing"

With batch processing, there is a list of commands generated and placed in a batch list. When the batch is ready, it is executed. In real-time processing, every command is executed immediately after it's been given.

what is batch processing and their examples?

delay between collecting the transection and receiving the results of processing

The main difference between batch sharing and time sharing is that in batch sharing system tasks are processed in order in which they arrive. Whereas, in the later the system switches between tasks.

In real time processing the user initiates a transaction through interaction with, usually, an input screen and sends the data to be processed. The response should come back immediately for the next cycle of reading, input, sending, processing and response. In batch processing the input records are held in a file or files which are input in one go to the batch process which deals with all records without any further interaction. This is typically done without user interaction.

You didn't give a context, but in an application like credit card processing a batch process collects a number of transactions into a batch and then sends them all at once at a predetermined time or as part of a manual process. A continuous process would process the cards as they were presented. In reality there is a mix in CC processing where a quick check is made on validity of card when presented and complete processing in a batch. In some transmission applications data is first collected and then "burst" out at a later time or after all the data is collected. This is analogous to a batch transmission.

It is both, it contain both elements of batch processing and elements of real-time processing. PIN verification uses real-time processing and the customer record shall only be updated at the end of the day(batch processing).

A program reads a large file and gives the report is example of batch processing

rem is a comment that is only seen if you edit the batch echo actually is printed when the batch is running

Not necessarily. It depends on what you are processing.

Types[edit]Contrasted with batch processingBatch processing is not transaction processing. Batch processing involves processing several transactions at the same time, and the results of each transaction are not immediately available when the transaction is being entered;[1]there is a time delay. Transactions are accumulated for a certain period (say for day) where updates are made especially after work.[edit]Real-time and batch processingThere are a number of differences between real-time and batch processing. These are outlined below:Each transaction in real-time processing is unique. It is not part of a group of transactions, even though those transactions are processed in the same manner. Transactions in real-time processing are stand-alone both in the entry to the system and also in the handling of output.Real-time processing requires the master file to be available more often for updating and reference than batch processing. The database is not accessible all of the time for batch processing.Real-time processing has fewer errors than batch processing, as transaction data is validated and entered immediately. With batch processing, the data is organised and stored before the master file is updated. Errors can occur during these steps.Infrequent errors may occur in real-time processing; however, they are often tolerated. It is not practical to shut down the system for infrequent errors.More computer operators are required in real-time processing, as the operations are not centralised. It is more difficult to maintain a real-time processing system than a batch processing system.

In Batch Processing is an offline system,where time factor is not crucial.In Real-time processing is online,where time factor is very crucial.We cannot make any dealys of time in Real-time system,in comparisons to Batch proceesing Systems.

Batch processing is a systematic execution of a series of tasks or programs on a computer. Characteristics include that processing is done automatically without manual input, and the process amortizes the computer system.

Real time processingIn a real time processing, there is a continual input, process and output of data. Data has to be processed in a small stipulated time period (real time), otherwise it will create problems for the system. For example: assembly line robots and radar system.batch processingIn a batch processing group of transactions collected over a period of time is collected, entered, processed and then the batch results are produced. Batch processing requires separate programs for input, process and output. It is an efficient way of processing high volume of data. For example: Payroll system, Examination system and billing system.
