process chain scheduling

Hi experts,

as far as I know, process chain alway can only one process start.

my problem is, for one cube( for example COOM_C02), I have lots of company code need to loading with separate time( after R3 settlement job are down).

for example:

Company1 6:00

company2 7:00

company3 7:00

company4 7:05

company5 10:00

if I put into process chain, can I use delay time to make sure the different time? do there have another way to scedule loading in different time in same process chain ?

the another way is sepate process chain, but it will case too much process chain.

    Hi Jie,

    Yes. You may need to manitain several infopackages but it would also facilitate easier error handling and debugging. The process chain would look like this:

    Start -> Infopackage1 Infopackage2 Infopackage3 Infopackage4 Infopackage5 (all the infoapckages are in parallel with different delay times) -> AND process type(depends whether you really need it) -> next steps....

    Hope this helps.

    Bye

    The most solid solution would be to make the process chain event based. Let the R/3 system trigger the different load packages after each settlement has run succesfully on R/3.

    Hi Jie,

    You have two options:

    1. Schedule the process chain after the last job is completed in R/3.

    <b>OR</b>

    2. Have separate infopackages for each of the company code with the delay times. Now have an "AND" process type to connect to these infopackages. So the next step will be proceeded only when all the 5 infopackages are completed.

    Bye

      If You have dependencies between source system processes and BW load process the safest way is to use event triggered environment. The timebased "delay framework" delivers only limited safety of the entire process. There are many sources of error and higher maintaince costs.
