On Unix

Use the cron utility.

On Windows

Use windows' Scheduled Tasks applet in control panel. Note that you must be a member of the Administrators group in order to use this facility.

JAMS Scheduler, our enterprise job scheduling software, includes SAS execution methods that enable users to run SAS jobs at pre-defined times or when triggered by other processes, like the receipt of a .txt file or the completion of a report. Read more about SAS Automation on our web site. [Full Disclosure: I represent the software vendor that offers this product.]

On any platform with jdk 1.6

Use the TlosLite job scheduler product for scheduling sas scripts.
