Adds a network category to an existing utility network.
Categories are used to control analysis at the asset group and asset type levels; for example, you can define whether a particular asset group or asset type is a protective device. You can also define a category type to control how trace analysis is executed; for example, you can specify that a network trace ends at a user-defined category type of ProtectiveDevice.
This tool allows you to add a new network category to a utility network that can be later assigned to a feature class at the asset group or asset type level using the Set Network Category tool.
Network categories can later be assigned to a network class for a specific asset group or asset type using the Set Network Category tool.
