Milestone triggering another milestone automatically???

Is there any way of triggering milestone under one activity(if confirmed) to trigger milstone of other activity automatically.................

I am facing this in a construction project.......

Example :

1. Acoording to contract SUPPLY value is RS100, errection value is RS200

After Supply client is paying RS 70 (70% of supply)

After Erection client is Paying Rs180 (90% of erection) and Rs 20 (20% of supply) = Rs200

After Commissioning Client is paying Rs20 (10% of erection) and Rs10 (10% of supply)= Rs30

Hope so my question is clear

i am doing milestone billing ....

1. i have created supply as an activity and created 3 milestones.....(70% , 20% & 10%)

2. i have created erectiona as an activity anbd created 2 milestones (90% & 10%)

After Confirming the activity of Erection, i want 20% under supply activity to be triggereed automatically ...........................

Thanks A lot in advance...

    not possible to trigger another milestone - this is conceptually incorrect

    in your example you should do the following

    create an activity called supply

    milestone no say 1000 for 70%

    create an activity called erection

    milestone no 1001 for 90%

    milestone no 1002 for 20%

    Create an activity called commissioning

    milestone no 1003 for 10%

    milestone no 1004 for 10%

    In your sales order

    Line item 0010 Supply Rs 100 link milestone 1000, 1002, 1003

    Line item 0020 erection Rs 200 link milestone 1001, 1004

    now when you confirm activity you will be able to bill for milestone 1000 i.e 70% of supply

    when you confirm activity erection you can bill 90% of erection and 20% of supply

    when you confirm activity commisioning you can bill the rest

    That is how to do it
