I think, you are asking about creation of Functional Location & its hierarchy.

Generally, Functional Locations will be created as per the physical existence.

Under one plant, if you have multiple Production lines, then each line can be created as Functional Location.

Sometimes, Functional Location will be created based on Equipment type. For example, Boiler Area or Generators Area or Parking Area. Here, multiple generators will be grouped & will be created as Generator Area. All generators surrounding to that will be assigned under that.

Also, Cost Centers (Department wise if each department separate cost center or Line wise as mentioned above if cost center created as per production line) can decide the Functional Location structure.

Generally, it will combination of both. Also accommodate your Business Requirement.

Check the below link.

Don't have a recipe infallible for this. A good source to determinate a FL structure is the ISO 14224. I agree fully that the final solution should consider: process, spacial and location- but all together.


By the way I suggest don't include in the structure the informations exists in std fields like Company, Plant, Location.

Why? Are redundant in reports and in future can be changed. Is easier update only the tables.

In a broadsence design of functional locations can be based on process, spacial and location wise as explained by Maheswaran in detail.

Ex:       Company code -    Plant    -   Location   -  sublocation  -  Process   -   Equipment.

                 APIL           -    1101    -      SPB      -  SPB01        -   MIX        -   MIX201
