A system assembly is a mechanism for organizing and grouping networks. You can create networks (such as a Walkway Net) under a system assembly, and then create pathways under each of them. A system assembly and network will only display in the specifications tree because they are organizational elements. A pathway will also display in your viewer. In the illustration below, the specifications tree shows a piping system assembly under an area, a network (Material Flow Net) under the piping system assembly, and a pathway (Path Reservation) under the network. The pathway is also physically shown in the area.

A logical set is a third organizational mechanism. If you want you can have system assembly-network-logical set and then a pathway.
