    Hello Shwetha,

    Location is where the equipment is physically located within the plant premises.

    Plant Section is the Division of Plant under which the equipment or functional location comes.

    Example:

    Consider a thermal power plant. There is a Condensate Extraction Pump located in the Zero meter elevation of CCR building.

    So the location of the equipment will be "CCR Building" or "0m Level" depending upon how deeper you define the locations.

    On the other hand, the plant section will Turbine system (broader) or Condensate system.

    Thanks,

    • Hi Shwetha,

      Functional Location is the functional classification. It may not necessarily overlap the physical location. Even though you cover Plant Section in your functional location,it may help you in reporting purposes.

      Even if you opt of BW/BO reports these fields can be used for effective and easier filtration.
