Multi Sub level Charactristic Dependency design

Hi Friends,

In our organization we are having various levels of storing documents which are presently being used. I am using Characteristic dependency I will explain briefly below:

1st level : Asset type (Sub Station, Line and Cables)

2.1 level : Sub Station Types (A, B,C,D) (linked to 1st level - Sub Station)

2.2 level : Line Types( L1, L2, L3)( linked to 1st level u2013 line)

3.1 level : Technical types (sub station equp , automation equp)(linked to 2.1 level u2013 A,B)

3.2 level :Line Sub types (circuit 1, circuit 2 )(linked to 2.2 level u2013 L1, L2)

3.1.1 level : Sub station equp types (GIS Details, Civil Details)(linked to 3.1 level - sub station equp)

3.1.2 level: Automation equp types (Protection, DCS Control) (linked to 3.1 level - automation equp) level : GIS Details (G1, G2, G3) (linked to 3.1.1 level u2013 GIS Details) level : Civil Details (linked to 3.1.1 level u2013 Civil Details) level : Protection Types (linked to 3.1.2 level u2013 Protection)

I assigned characteristics through dependency in the following way :

Extras > Object Dependencies > Editor > Select the dependency type as 'Precondition' and in line 000010

After completing this assignment when I am creating Master Record, using the class associated with above characteristics, it is not working correctly.

Working correctly :

1st and 2 .1 & 2.2 combination

2.1 and 3.1 combination.

Wrongly showing:

When I am selecting 1, 2.1, 3.1 and 3.1.2 system is showing and and which is wrong. It should show only and not & Because and are not part of 3.1.2

Can we do the way I am doing. Is it correct ? Is there any better way ?
