OID description:
The Organizational Unit Name attribute type specifies an organizational Unit. When used as a component of a directory name it identifies an organizational unit with which the named object is affiliated.

The designated organizational unit is understood to be part of an organization designated by an OrganizationName attribute. It follows that if an Organizational Unit Name attribute is used in a directory name, it must be associated with an OrganizationName attribute.

An attribute value for OrganizationalUnitName is a string chosenby the organization of which it is part (e.g., OU = "Technology Division"). Note that commonly used abbreviation "TD" would be a separate and alternative attribute value.
