Re: Organizational structure - chart

What are the best ways to construct a schema/namespace that represent an
organizational structure? I have an org chart that has a collection of
offices that are organized as a tree to an arbitrary depth. eg:
Office of Operations
Director Business Mangagement 555-1313
Director Info Technology 555-1215
Is the semi-hierarchy with a flat base the best way to go? What other
schemes are viable?
My recommendation is to put all your people under one subtree, make it
as flat as possible, use the title attribute as appropriate, and also
use dn attributes to reference nodes in an organizational hierarchy
expressed somewhere else in the DIT.
Even better, use the inetorgperson manager dn attribute to make your
reporting relationships explicit. Then your organizational hierarchy is
prima facie. Of course, some organizations don't have a clear hierarchy
and can't be easily represented this way. At least that's what they'll say.
