Updating the organizational structure by using the organizational chart

Version:

Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Reflect the growth of your company by creating new elements in your organizational structure. As your organization develops, you can add new divisions, units, and sub-units that correspond with new elements of your enterprise. Maintaining an organizational structure can accelerate your application development, as you can reuse different application elements across your organization.

For a clear visualization of levels in your company, use an organizational chart to add new elements. The organizational chart displays each level with expandable sub-levels, such as a unit for a division. For example, when an Engineering division gains a new team, you can create a new unit that visualizes the new team.

In an organizational structure, an organization reflects your company. A division corresponds with a part of the company that gathers teams that operate in a similar business sector, such as engineering or human resources. A unit visualizes a single team. For further granularization, you can create sub-units. For example, if you need a unit to represent multiple teams that cooperate, a sub-unit might reflect individual teams. Consider a scenario in which a UPlusTelco organization needs to create an Engineering division. The division includes a Mobile unit with two sub-units, Prepaid and Postpaid.

You can reuse rules and other elements of your application across organizational layers. For example, reuse a process for calculating expenses for an entire organization and then specify different maximum amounts for each division.
