As per SAP Help:

1) Define Location

In this step you define locations within a plant.

A location allows a plant to be classified according to spatial or situation criteria.

The following master data objects can be assigned to these locations:

Asset master records of Asset Management

pieces of equipment

functional locations

work centers

production resources/tools

Note

Locations are used for informative assignment only. You can only use locations to structure a matchcode or as parameter criteria in reporting.

You cannot derive any functionality from locations in terms of hierarchies, etc.

Activities

Define the locations

Additional information

If you use Asset Management in your system, you can assign each fixed asset to one of these locations.

Since plant maintenance usually structures assets more precisely than Asset Accounting, no check is made to establish whether the asset location and the location of the PM object that indicates this asset via the asset number, are the same.

You can also assign a location to each work center by maintaining the work centers. Here too, the work center location and the location of the PM object are to be regarded as separate.

2) While creating location it gets assigned with Plant....and Plant is already assigned with company code...so in that way location gets assigned with company code

In defining section of Enterprise Structure in SPRO, you can find "define location" against the menu path"Logistics general". If you are refering to this location, then it is meant for Asset Management. You can just ignore this from MM point of view.

Generally here a physical location is mapped.

It is used for example in asset tracking. You can see the field Location in the "Time Dependent" tab of the asset master.
