How to create Scheduler in  OpenERP . ( ir.cron )
                                                                                                        Nayi Pinakin
                                                                                                        Trainee OpenERP ,
                                                                                                        Gandhinagar . (Jan 2012 )
Here are Steps you have to follow :

Step 1 :
          In view file simply write as under
          <record model="ir.cron" id="resource_panelty_cron">
            <field name="name">Resource Panelty Count</field>
            <field name="interval_number">1</field>
            <field name="interval_type">minute</field>
            <field name="numbercall">-1</field>
            <field eval="False" name="doall"/>
            <field eval="'lib.register'" name="model"/>
            <field eval="'compute_penalty'" name="function"/>  # call the function in .py file
            <field eval="'()'" name="args"/>

Step 2 :
        you can also directly create your Scheduler :
         like ,
         1.       First you simply go setting - > configuration -> scheduler -> scheduler_action

      2.  Now create new Scheduler  here interval number and interval unit important

   3.  Now , in object simply write your table name and in Method write your .py file method 
        which you want to call at every repeated time.


 Description : 

"scheduler_id" : is a unique xml record id
"scheduler_name" : any desirable name
"active" :  True or False determines whether the scheduler is active or not..
"user_id" : refers the user who owns the scheduler
"interval_number" : number of times the scheduler is to be called based on the "interval_type"

: it can be days, hours, minututes etc
"numbercall" : Number of time the function is called. negative number indicates no limit
"doall" : booelan field. A 'True' enables it to execute missed occurences as soon as the server is restarts

 "model" : Name of object whose function will be called when this scheduler will run. e.g. 'res.partener'
"function" : Name of the method to be called on the object when this scheduler is executed.
 "args" : Arguments to be passed to the method. e.g. (uid,)
