Can tools/processes be run concurrently in a single model using multitasking/multithreading? 

What I mean is, can tools in a model start simultaneously and run concurrently when it is not necessary for them to run sequentially?

Below is an example.  In this case the numbers indicate the approximate order in which the tools would be run.

Can ArcGIS models do this currently?

ESRI: If not, is this capability planned for the future?

If that is a model, is it taking an inordinate length of time to run?

A model instead of scripting?

Is for scheduling purposes?

It takes 7 to 10 minutes and it would be nice if it were faster.

You seem to imply that this might be possible with scripting?  That's fine if it's possible.  However, I'm trying to find out if this is possible in ArcGIS Model Builder.

Question still stands.

Check Geometry (Data Management)—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

the tools help topic shows at the bottom the environment parameters that are supported by any tool

Thanks.

There don't seem to be any parameters dealing with concurrent use within models.

Question still stands.

parallel processing is covered as an environment parameter

Parallel Processing Factor (Environment setting)—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

there are no parameters specifically except for

when looking for multithreading.

More effort seems to have been made running big things faster than many small things at once, the latter being more of a scripting outside of Pro domain
