In this IMG activity you maintain the corresponding standard hierarchy for your controlling area.
You can create a new hierarchy or change an existing one.
If the hierarchy consists only of the highest node, you cannot assign new business processes to the hierarchy. You must first create further nodes on a subordinate hierarchy level.
Remember that group names for cost centers, cost elements, activity types, statistical key figures, orders, business processes, and cost objects must be unique for a client. You may use each name only once.
