Usually Profit Centers area assigned to Segments you are able to group them as such. In Some cases you will be able to use profit center groups instead of segments to get the same result, but in case you want to have profit centers pointing to one segment from different profit center groups, then Segment is the way to go. There is also a possibility to implement custom derivation of Segment based on Business Add-In (BADI).
