The business object Functional location is an organizational
unit within Logistics that structures the maintenance objects of a
company according to functional, process-oriented or spatial criteria.
A functional location represents the place at which a maintenance task is to be performed.
Functional locations are structured hierarchically to represent the structure of the system to be maintained.
Functional locations of different hierarchies can be linked to one
another. In this way, you can represent the global network structure of
a technical system, the links between different technical systems and the dependencies between individual functional locations.
