Monuments are items that are large and difficult or expensive to move or re-setup.
These can include production technology, hardware, buidlings, designs or even software. Typically they have lengthy changeover times and large-scale requirements to work properly. These "monuments" are so difficult to move that designs, orders, items, information and products must be brought to the monument and to wait in a queue for processing. When used in a layout context, monuments can not be moved. Other equipment must be placed around the monument.
