Multi Thread/Instance

I currently have a SAS EG project that loops though a list of other projects - of which there are around 30 - and runs them sequentially throughout the day.

It’s just a simple DO loop that uses %INCLUDE to run the selected project during the loop.

I was wondering whether it was possible to run these projects from within the loop using separate threads in order to cut down the run time of the overall project?
