Relating Service Master to Material Master

We're looking at implementing Service Master within our organization, and I'm trying to explain Service Master as a concept/idea to folks within the organization. It seems one of the best ways to communicate how Service Master will work is to relate the data fields to what exists in Material Master. Right now, I'm using the following analogies to explain the data hierarchy within Service Master:

Service Category = Material Type

Service Group = Material Group (identical)

Service Type = Material Class

SSC Item(s) = Material Classification Characteristics

Are these appropriate analogies? Or are there better ways to draw comparisons between the fields?

    Service procurement and material procurement is quite different. You can't compare with each other.

    If you want to implement service procurement, then have a look into these two blogs

    SAP Service Configurations In SAP MM - Part 1

    SAP Service Configurations In SAP MM - Part 2

    Here you will find almost all service procurement configuration.
