Categories are the method by which the items in inventory can be separated logically and functionally for planning, purchasing and other activities.You can use categories and category sets to group your items for various reports and programs. A category is a logical classification of items that have similar characteristics. A category set is a distinct grouping scheme and consists of categories. The flexibility of category sets allows you to report and inquire on items in a way that best suits your needs. This article will describe how to create categories and category set in oracle inventory.
Suppose we need a category called ‘INV_COLORS’. We can define multiple colors in this category and then assign this category to an item.
- Item1 —- Black
- Item2 —- Red
- Item3 —- Green
- Item4 —- Orange
