This article explains about executing a function within a time limit. Also includes a helper class which helps to implement timeout functions easily. This article deals with running multiple timeout processes each with time limit.
namespace TimeoutFunctions.Workers
    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Text;
    using System.Threading;

    internal abstract class BaseWorker : ITimeoutWorker
        public abstract bool Start(DataCarrier dataCarrier);

        /// <summary>
        /// Executes the supplied delegate by passing <paramref name="userState"/> object.
        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="userState">Object that can be used in the method where thread is executing</param>
        /// <param name="methodToExecute"><see cref="WaitCallback"/> instance</param>
        protected void ExecuteMethod(object userState, WaitCallback methodToExecute) {
