You use the Organization Hierarchy window to specify your organization hierarchy. The organization hierarchy you define here appears in a list of values in the Implementation Options window.
You can create as many organization hierarchies as you need for different reporting and processing needs, and you can create multiple versions of an organization hierarchy. Oracle Projects uses the hierarchy version to determine which organizations are used for reporting and processing.
You specify a start organization to indicate which branch of your organization hierarchy you want Oracle Projects to recognize as the top of your hierarchy for a particular purpose. If you want to use your entire organization hierarchy, your top organization (generally the business group) is the start organization.
The following organization hierarchy versions are assigned in Oracle Projects:
