Batch Processing explained

In computing, batch processing refers to a computer working through a queue or batch of separate jobs (programs) without manual intervention (non-interactive). Depending on the situation, each job may have an associated metadata such as client, department or user - and some indication of the priority and resources required. An operating system in this case will often use this last information to run the computer at optimum utilisation.
