Facility : ArchiMate

A physical structure or environment. A facility represents a physical resource that has the capability of facilitating (e.g., housing or locating) the use of equipment. It is typically used to model factories, buildings, or outdoor constructions that have an important role in production or distribution processes. Examples of facilities include a factory, laboratory, warehouse, shopping mall, cave, or spaceship. Facilities may be composite; i.e., consist of sub-facilities. The name of a facility should preferably be a noun referring to the type of facility; e.g., “Rotterdam oil refinery”.
