The hierarchy chart is a chart with multiple levels of hierarchy, ordered from top to bottom. You can use it in most Microsoft Office programs such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. In the MS Word program, it is called a visual hierarchy chart. Hierarchical charts are very useful to display data in a way that makes sense to the reader.
A hierarchy chart is a series of sections on the same page, each with a different section title, and each with one or more sub-sections. The sections are denoted by bold text indicating where they belong. A hierarchy chart shows the relative position of items on the page and allows information about what is above and below it. It is conventionally used for displaying data in tables using bulleted lists or numbered lists.
