Organizational Units

Abstract

The Organizational Units represent the logical structural units of a customer that can form complex structures, having other Org Units in their hierarchies.

The Organizational Units represent the logical structural units of a hierarchy. These structural units don't have a physical correspondent like Sites do, but can be used to group devices into logical structures, from the customer's perspective (like production, accounting, management, etc). The Organizational Units can form complex structures, having other Organizational Units in their hierarchies.

In i4connected portal, the hierarchical structure is most commonly formed by both Sites and Organizational Units. This allows the user to pinpoint any specific part of the Customer's business. Check out the simplified example below:

Customer

Site

Organizational Unit

Organizational Unit

Area

Customer A

Paris plant

Production

Molding

Molding Line 1

Molding Line 2

Assembly

Assembly Line 1

Assembly Line 2

Administrative

Financial

Office 1

Office 2

Management

Top Floor

Using a complex structure like the one described above, the i4connected user can query specific details, for example the electricity consumption for the second assembly line.
