    Task grouping and sequencing


      Lets say there are predefined tasks for a service . These tasks can be automatically created by adapting the process using boolean . This could either be concurrent tasks or Sequential. This isn't an issue.


      Concurrent :If Task 1 exists, Task 2 exists, Task 3 exists=> create Task 1, Task 2, Task 3 etc

      Sequential :If Task 1 exists, Create Task 1; If Task 1 closed => If Task 2 exists, Create Task 2;  If Task 2 closed =>  If Task 3 exists, Create Task 3 etc


      I am looking for a way where we could combine the above both methods.

      Reason behind this is there will always be some tasks that should be done at the same time and a few in sequence.


      Can we group these tasks somehow and provide a sequence? ( Probably an ER)

      Lets say if I have 8 tasks defined on a Service.

      Task 1  Sequence 1

      Task 2  Sequence 2

      Task 3  Sequence 1

      Task 4  Sequence 2

      Task 5  Sequence 1

      Task 6  Sequence 3

      Task 7  Sequence 1

      Task 8  Sequence 3


      I will need to have Task 1,3,5,7 created first and when these tasks are closed the next set and so on..

      Note: This sequence can vary per Service. Any idea on how to implement this will be great. Thanks

          You would probably need to look at some very clever process design. You can create 4 different 'add task' in the process and when the Incident has reached a particular status you can add a "are all task at end status" precondition in order to move on.

          You can then continue and adding on new tasks in your process after this status.
