Locking problem with a layout in a BPS tool

We have a BPS tool using layouts to input transaction. The layouts have many variables, for instance, a cost center variable. This variable has a hierarchy attached to it. Our problem is a locking issue -- when users go in the layout on a specific cost center node in the hierarchy, this user locks all this node and children under it, and users can't open the layout to enter a transaction under the node. Is there a way to bypass this locking problem? Please post your ideas. Thanks!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If users are accessing SAP BPS transactional Infocubes, maybe those cubes are in turn opening up reference tables with write premissions. Perhaps the transactional cubes should instead be non-transactional cubes. Alternatively, if there is no intent to write to a cost center or other reference tables, maybe the access permissions associated with the transactional cubes with respect to certain tables can be in read-only mode.
