What is a Tier Structure?
Tier refers to a series of rows or layers or a level or grade in the hierarchy of an organization or system. A tier structure describes a system with distinct levels or layers. In the arrangement of a tier system, one level must be completed or accomplished before another commences. Each level must be undertaken separately from the other.
