The words "operations" and "operational" comes to mind. It carries the connotation
of being business-like and covering an extended area. Think of the phrase
"field of operations" or the title "Operational Project Manager".

> We have three levels of information included in our documentation:
> Product level (the most general level)
> *something* level (the intermediate level)
> Module level (the detailed level)
> The terms "product" and "module" are set at this point (we have a May 1
> release date), and cannot be changed. However, we need a name for the
> intermediate level of information. Two ideas thus far have been "Functional
> Area" and "Subject Area", but I'm not too thrilled with either of those.
