comma missing?


Explanation:
Should it read

The broad levels, approaches and indeed structures are in place.

I asume this is figurative, about some organisation.
You give very little context.

If this doesn´t help, please give a few more details.

Brede abstrakt fremgange


Explanation:
I am not entirely sure, but I am taking a few guesses from computer programming and similar terms, 'High Level Approaches', to understand what the point of the sentence is. I think the sentence means, an abstract method is used, for something.... This abstraction normally is high, which in computer programming languages means it will incorporate natural language elements and automation of processes, or low, which in the same context means machine code can form a significant part of the language and there is little automation of processes.
I don't understand, in concrete terms, what broad level would imply, but it can be translated at brede abstrakt fremgange.

The references are to show how I reached my suggested translation.

overordnede tilgange


Explanation:
Jeg mener, at "broad-levels", når det anvendes adjektivisk, kan oversættes til "overordnede".
