I have two service files that are running ros code . When I start my system the service file B complains about not able to look for the robot model, then when I stop both service files and start manual using command roslaunch project-name launch file, and then starts service B it works , after that I close the manual roslaunch command using control c and start service file A and now when I restart service file B it works .

Okay , I resolved this problem by providing service 2 20 seconds when restarting the computer using,

#ExecStartPre=/bin/sleep 20

By doing this I made sure that that that service file 1 is has provided everything on the parameter service and has launched all required file successfully.
