In IBM® Business Process Manager, minimize the extra resources that are needed for multiple system lane transitions.

Each system lane activity is considered a new Event Manager task, which adds a task transition in IBM Process Server. These task transitions are expensive. If your business process definition (BPD) contains multiple system lane service tasks in a row, use one system lane task that wraps the others to minimize the extra resources that these transitions need.
