I'm not familiar enough with internal workings of maven but I thought
that if project Y had a dependency on X and Y is compiled it uses the
installed X jar in the m2 repo (not the classes in X/target/classes)
i.e the "compile" of Y has to wait for "install" of X.

Which seems to reduce your capacity for concurrency.
What have I missed?
