Hi Khalid,

The relation  wasScheduledAfter was superseded by (the overloaded) 
wasStartedBy,
itself supersed by wasStartedByActivity (see resolution [1]).

I therefore propose to close this issue unless you suggest otherwise.

Regards,
Luc

I guess there are cases, the activity will terminates without an agent intervention, and will be followed by the execution of other activity. According to the above definition, in those cases, we will not be able to use wasScheduledAfter.
