More number of Processing Flags in BPN tool to enhnace the flexibilty of rule sets and avoid rule clash

As part of the production Enhancement Rule we use the Business Process Notification Tool which consists of content based routing mechanisms or rule sets needed to on-board partners , receive , deliver files and use of rule sets which calls business processess as deemed necessary for the data . We use Processing flags to create this rules and route data to the next business process . Currently we have options to use only three variables of the Processing Flags (1,2 and 3) to be used , which is far less for example for a customer Ceva Logistics which has more than 2000 rules under various rule sets . This narrows down the capacity to single out rules for delivery and other purposes as some other rule may be using the same processing flag which results in a rule clash.
If we can increase this variable number from 3 to at least 10 this will greatly enhance the ability to create new rules and we would not have to worry of an underlying rule which is having the same Processing flag . This is business critical as dual and duplicate rules results in failures and delivery .
