This procedure deals with creating and modifying a plant hierarchy item on an intermediate level using the Plant Hierarchy Explorer.  Area is the default intermediate level in a hierarchy that has three levels.

The number of intermediate levels depends on the level definitions you made in the Plant Hierarchy dialog box.  For example, if your plant hierarchy has four levels, both Level 2 and Level 3 are intermediate levels.  You can create items on any of these levels.  However, only on Level 3, which is the lowest intermediate level item, you can create multiple <units>.

  2. With the Domain Administration window open, click .

  3. In the Plant Hierarchy Explorer, right-click any level under which the software displays the icon PPM All Outputs Graphic.
