The Support Areas sheet in the SpaceMgmt.xls workbook defines areas that are used as support areas. Areas within the model reserved for processes such as waste treatment, product packaging, and shipping and receiving are commonly known as support areas.
In addition to the common properties discussed in Space Management Sheets, the following properties can be defined for a support area:
