Goal

Using Position Hierarchies, is it possible to setup approval rules and approval hierarchies such that depending on the data on the PO, it will follow a different approval path?     Ideally the system should automatically route through certain paths in the Approval Hierarchy to find the appropriate next approver(s) depending on the data on the PO. 

For example, a standard Purchase Order that has item category = OFFICE.SUPPLIES should route to holder in Position B and then holder Position C for approval. However a standard Purchase Order that has item category = MISC.MISC must route to holder in Position X and then holder in Position Y for approval, and so forth.  

How can this type of routing be achieved?
