Cumulation of capacity



I have to start using Capacity planning in my factory. But the workcenter capacity have been setting without considering real capacity. Despite that, I can't change the capacity configuration because it would change the scheduling.

I thought I could use "fake" workcenter with the accurate capacity, linked them to the real workcenter that receive the demand throught a hierarchy. with the cumlation of requirement capacity, it,s working.

But now, they are asking me to create bigger hierarchy, representing a section of the factory. I consider creating a hierarchy of 3 levels ( level 1 : root, level 2 : fake workcenter, level 3 : Workcenter with requirement capacity). Is is possible to cumulate capacity requirement from level 3, but the available capacity from level 2 ?
