The statuses of those objects will be considered when determining transactions that are not enabled. This field is
used if you have Oracle Warehouse Management installed.
3. Indicate the default cost group for this subinventory. If the cost group assignment rules fail to identify a cost group for newly received material, this cost group will be assigned. This cost group will remain with the material, even through subinventory transfers, until you perform a cost group change transaction.

Following are the important parameters that we must define
1. Quantity tracked Indicate whether each transaction for this subinventory updates the quantity on hand for the subinventory (Quantity Tracked).
If you leave this option unchecked, on–hand balances are not maintained and you cannot check or update the Asset Inventory, Include in ATP, Reservable, or Nettable options. You can update this value only if there is no on–hand quantity, no pending transaction, or no uncosted transaction for the subinventory.
