Help with parallel building

Hello,

Over the years, I've attempted to build in parallel builds to my processes but ultimately it has proven difficult. I was brainstorming about it and something that I think would help is the idea of a step anchor.

Let me explain:
Currently a wait step can wait for various things but not a list of steps to complete. If each step had an anchor, the wait can be told to only continue once these steps finish or pass.

An anchor, in my view, would be a field on each step that is a unique value (maybe a guid??) that is generated when the step is added to the build process. I decided not to do this by step number because step numbers tend to change over time.

Does any of this sound like it is helpful or already built in? I've tried to manage parallel builds using PIDs but it ended up being incredibly difficult to manage.
