Hi,

It would be nice to have the same capabilities for displaying rows and columns. Currently, I find that only rows can be used to represented hierarchies (subcomponents appear as indented row of a component row) by creating a "Line" table element under another "Line" table elements. However, the same is not possible for a column (one cannot create a column element under another column element).

Please consider.

Regards,
Avi

Hello Avi,

Indeed this is impossible, but I don't understand why you want to display a hierarchy for the column. I do not see how it could work?

Hi,

From a user perspective, column and row may be equivalent.
Some are more comfortable viewing something by the row, while other may be comfortable viewing the same thing by the column.
Since you obviously understand why hierarchies are good for rows (which Sirius supports), then the same reasoning applies to columns.

Regards,
Avi

And here is another use scenario:

there is a design tool called Design Structure Matrix (DSM).
In popular DSM implementations, columns and rows are symmetrical. Hierarchies can be used to expressed system decomposition hierarchy or clustering.
Here is an example: https://www-edc.eng.cam.ac.uk/cam/images/dsm/vacuum-detailed-modules.png
