Hi Cero ,
Thanks for reply ,
Can you plz help me the command you have suggested
[ -f x.flagfile -a -f y.flagfile ] && Z.sh

this means this success condition would have to check with " if " loop ?

I have tried with below logic but failed if X and Y scripts are not finishing at same time

X.sh &
Y.sh &
wait (10)
s1_addr=`sed -n "1{p;q;}" $temp/x_success.tmp |cut -d ":" -f1`
s1_cont=`sed -n "1{p;q;}" $temp/y_success.tmp |cut -d ":" -f1`
if [ $s1_addr == "success" && $s1_cont == "success"  ];then

Actually I like Don Craguns solution better than the one I suggested because you do not need flagfiles.
The wait command without an argument waits for all background jobs you submitted. When you give an argument it is interpreted as the process id to wait for.
I'll try to explain Don Craguns code:
# start X.sh in background
bash X.sh &
# store the process id of X.sh in the variable Xpid
# start Y.sh in foreground. If Y.sh finishes sucessfully wait for X.sh to finish.
# wait $Xpid returns the return code of the process that was waited for (X.sh)
# if this was sucessfull start Z.sh in foreground. 
bash Y.sh && wait $Xpid && bash Z.sh
# the syntax A && B && C says: start A, then if it returned success start B, then if B returned success start C
