The Facility Period Close process, as introduced in Infor LX 8.3.4, was designed to function interactively. 

The expectation was that clients with a continuous or 24-hour worldwide operation in multiple facilities would submit the Period End Close jobs for each facility as daily operations ceased or shifts ended for each facility. This process was designed to function interactively so that validations of users performing transactions that conflicted with period end processing, and resulting messages, were immediately sent to the period end user. 

This enhancement provides a batch mode for the Facility Period Close (INV930) process and allows the Update IIM Inventory from IWI (INV931) process to be submitted from the INV930B program. The enhancement also provides a batch mode for the INV931 process. For example, a user has a 24-hour operation in facilities around the world, but a centralized IT operation. With this enhancement the user can submit the individual facilities to be closed to a batch process that can be managed by a scheduler, automatically releasing each facility to be closed at a predetermined time.
