Hi Chris,

Yes, the approach you state (in quotes below) is correct.

"where a floor is modeled with two or more separate shells, combine the
equest created systems into one system for that floor"

For example, if you have to model a multi-story building which has two
wings, with two multi-story shells (one for each wing), there should still
only be one system per floor. If you are using wizard to generate the
systems and it creates two or more systems for a floor, you can re-assign
the thermal zones to be on a single system and delete the other systems.
