It is techinically possible to have 40 levels in the hierarchy. ie each character representing one level. there is no need for separator. However thats not a judious way of using it and there is no business case which requires 40 levels. It is better to divide them appropriately.

Hi Pankaj

Depending upon the Business Scenario , you can create this.

Example:-

System- Purification System

Area- - Filteration Area

Sub Area - Filteration Area No 1

Function - Pumping Section

Sub Function - Pumping Section 1

Item - Pump A101

The Six Level Hierarchy is the Ideal guideline.

You may create more or less levels depending upon the need of the Business

I hope my answer helps you

Hi Friend

I think your answer is correct.

Idealy only 6 hierarchies are possible but how? i don't know.

This question i was asked during an interveiw and being told that only 6 levels are possible in ideal way.

If you have an idea! give an example.

waiting for your reply.

Hello ,

I guess we can create Maximum 13 levels for functional location. Bcause Edit Mask allows only 30 characters & eack level has to be separated by separator (-).

That means we can create only 13 levels as 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-13..

Thanks

Hi,

if we activate alternative labelling then Edit mask allows 40 characters and we can create 16 levels max

hi

it depends upon how you created the Edit mask in your system

example

XX-XNN-NX/X

1 2 3 4 5 6

here you there are about 6 hierarchies in which you can also expand further
