Difference Between Alternative And Parallel Seq

Hi SAP Gurus

Please tell me, What is the Difference Between Alternative And Parallel Sequence




Generally in routing 3 types of sequence are present which are standard, parellel and alternate sequence.

Alternate sequences are linked to the standard sequence which is the main sequence. The place where alternate sequence starts from the standard sequence is called branch operation and again the place where it joins the standard sequence is called the return operation.

Parellel sequences are set of operation which run parellel to the standard sequence, for example in a chemical industry for analytical processes that occur parellel to the main production process.

Alternate sequence consists of set of operations other than the standard sequence so that either of the sequences can be run for a production process.Generally branch operations in the standard sequence are ingored in this process
