How does the user know to use Execution Indirection?

How does the user know to use Execution Indirection?

Problem:

how does the user know to use Execution Indirection and what to set the parameters to?

Resolution:

The person responsible for building the projects needs to know the application, and know whether it has any utility functions like LINK. A lot of shops will have utility programs that dynamically allocate data sets based on the name, and associate them with a COBOL FD, for example (using SVC 99). That's the kind of thing Execution Indirection is designed to handle.
