YYYY.3.3.2.4 Arbitrary Tree Structure

Combining these concepts, each of the parallel subsystems may produce an Inventory which is itself a tree of Inventory SOP Instances. Each of those subtrees may follow the structures of either parallel or serial production. In general, the IOD supports an arbitrary tree structure (see Figure YYYY.3-6), where each node is the root of a subtree or a terminal leaf.
