A system assembly is a mechanism for organizing and grouping logical lines. You can create logical lines (such as a Piping Line or Conveyor Network) under a system assembly, a logical set under a logical line, and then create runs under them. A system assembly, logical line and logical set will only display in the specifications tree because they are organizational elements. A run will also display in your viewer. In the illustration below, the specifications tree shows a piping system assembly under an area, a logical line (Piping Assembly1) under the piping system assembly, and a run (Pipe Run1) under the logical line. The run can be seen in the area.
