The orientation of substituents does not matter for most molecules because the bonds can rotate, so any number of different orientations can be correct as long as they yield the same name. The only significant exception is in the case of geometric isomers. When choosing orientations around a double bond, one must consider whether it is cis(Z) or trans(E).
