"Safety start" in process chain


I want to implement the following :

I've got two chains

The second one should start

- either at the end of the first chain

- either at a defined time (as a security start if the first one take too much time or dump)

I can have only one start process in a chain.

Does anybody has a workaround ?

Thank for your help.

Best regards

    1)Put an OR after the first PC's

    2)Connect the or to ABAP program which raises an event

    3)Use this event in the START of the second PC.

    After your process chains are complete, kick off an event using ABAP process type. You could create this simple program & use it in the ABAP process type:



    Selection screen. **


    selection-screen skip 1.

    selection-screen begin of block b1 with frame.

    selection-screen skip.

    parameters : p_event like btcuev-EVENTID obligatory.

    selection-screen skip.

    selection-screen end of block b1.


    Start-of-selection. **



    perform raise_event.


    *& Form raise_event




    --> p1 text

    <-- p2 text


    form raise_event.



    eventid = p_event.

    endform. " raise_event

    AND use this event in START process of all subsequent process chains.

    *This should work for you, try it.Hope it helps***
