TIME=NOLIMIT is the same as coding TIME=1440; no CPU time or wait time limit checking is performed by MVS.
TIME=MAXIMUM allows the job to use up to 357,912 minutes of CPU time or about 248.5 days of continuous CPU usage.
TIME=0 - Indicates that the step is to use the time remaining from the previous step.If the step exceeds the remaining time available, the step abnormally terminates.
