Item Attribute Controls
Item attributes are information about an item, such as order cost, lead time, and revision control.
One of the prerequisites for defining items (and assigning values to item attributes) is setting attribute controls. There are two types of attribute control:
Attributes maintained at the Master level have the same attribute values in each organization in which an item is assigned. For example, you maintain an item's primary unit of measure at the Master level.
Attributes maintained at the Organization level may have different attribute values in different organizations. For example, an item may be min-max planned in a distribution organization but MRP planned in a production organization.
- Status control: Describes whether certain status attributes have default values that appear when you assign a status code to an item, and whether status codes control those attribute values after the defaults are assigned to an item.
The status attributes are:
