A system is a set of units that make up a single entity. For example, the various pieces of equipment for heating and air-conditioning might all be considered to belong to a single HVAC system. Here are some other examples:

Electrical
Plumbing
Security

Defining systems gives you another way to organize reports about your units. You can get detailed cost breakdowns to see how much time and resources you spend maintaining each system.

Systems are most useful for organizing units that are spread across many locations. If you have a number of units that are all in the same location, it's probably better to classify them as sub-units of a larger unit. For example, you might consider an assembly line as a single unit; the machines that make up the line would all be sub-units of the larger unit.
