Hierarchies of mechatronic components can be pre-defined in libraries through the nesting of components. For example, an RTS24 always contains St01CentralFunctions, etc. In addition, when a modular system is developed, the positions where the project engineer may insert further components must be pre-defined, for example, the project-specific insertion of machining stations for the RTS24. Positions where further components may be inserted in the project are called Placeholders.
