To create a user group that is to represent a set of tasks its members perform.
A user group defines the data that members of the group can access. The group also specifies the actions members can perform on that data. In this way, a group represents a scope of responsibility each member of the group shares. A system user can belong to only one group at a time. For that reason, the scope of work that a group represents must enable members to work effectively without the need to switch groups.
