responsibility can be assigned to more than one business
group and so users can access records from multiple
business groups. In this model, multiple security profiles
can be assigned to a single responsibility.

Manager and Assistant HR Manager can use the same
responsibility, but will be able to view different data.
For Security Groups Enabled Security, use Global Security
Profiles window.

This means Role based access to Operating Units.
Single installation of EBS can support different types of
organizations and this feature is ability to access multiple
organizations from a single responsibility, which is avaiable
in majority of Oracle application modules.
Typical example of MOAC may be similar to senario listed
