To be honest 1,500 lines of code isn't really the problem (I've seen much bigger programs) it's the quantity of data and how it's being processed which is causing the long run time.
You could set the errorcheck option to STRICT as documented here -> http://documentation.sas.com/?docsetId=lesysoptsref&docsetTarget=n074sx2hkq8dzpn1ptoydcmzfspt.htm&do...
or use the errorabend option but that will terminate the whole session leaving you no wiser as to what went wrong....

Ensure the 1500 lines of code has been: modularised, validated, and stress tested. Then an unexpected error will not happen. Modularising the code will allow you to block the whole process up into smaller chunks, allowing for conditionally checking at various points.
The question really is what does your documentation on the process say - you do have all the documentation e.g. functional design, testing, data structures etc.
