Rpm ordering in YaST and YUM


Need a little help. I have created an Add-on repo and I am installing it using YaST , similar repo has been created for YUM too. I want one specific rpm to be installed only in the end. Is there any way I can specify an rpm to be installed only after the rest of the rpms in the product is installed? I know one way is to modify the spec file of the rpm which I want to install last to have a Requires field which contains the name of all the other rpms. Is there any other way this can be achieved? How do I control the order?

Thanks in advance for your help,

I'm not sure for yast off the top of my head, but for centos you'd be looking at 'yum-priorities'.
