Parent child list to ragged hierarchy

Hi, I am looking for a way to automatically create a ragged hierarchy for all possible combinations. The input is a simple file with only the parent - child combinations.

I've attached a screenshot of the parent child combination and how the ragged hierarchy should look like.

 

I think it is possible to do this when I combine the parent child list and ragged hierarchy list in one module and then create each level step by step, but I would like to avoid combining the 2 dimensions as the list will be extremely large!

 

Any ideas / suggestions?

Thanks,

JJ

Have you looked at this training, it might be able to help:

Thanks for the link @rob_marshall , but I should have been clearer in my description.

In my case it will be a many to many relations. It is for a bill of material setup.

 

For example:

F1 (Finished good) need components: C1, C2

F2 (Finished good) need component: C1

C1 component need component: C3

So in this case C1 has parents: F1 and F2

 

To create ragged hierarchy I need to find all possible combinations, which are:

F1

C1-F1

C2-F1

C3-C1-F1

F2

C1-F2

C3-C1-F2

Take a look at David Smith's attachment in this thread:  https://community.anaplan.com/t5/Anaplan-Platform/Bill-of-Material-Explosion-Best-Practice/m-p/82044...

 

Pack a lunch as it is long, but I am thinking it will be what you need.

Thanks, that is very useful!
It is needed though to have the dimensions (BOM and children) combined in one module which might result in a very big model.... but I guess we need to accept that.
Will try to set it up like this to see what happens!
