There is an excellent tool from IBM (a part of Tivoli) called Maestro. It has a GUI interface allowing operators to change schedule, cancel, suspend or resume jobs, as well as to see the report about errors. It is a multi-platform, distributed tool which works on AIX and Solaris and, probably, a few other platforms. It has a feature called "fence", which is similar to the restricted session mode: all jobs are automatically suspended, which is great for maintenance and ensuring that nothing will run during the designated downtime window.
