Working with Long SKU Classes (WLSC)

Purpose: Long SKU classes represent class codes for a SKU. For example, you may want to assign a long SKU class code to items that differ from the mail order class codes for the same group of items. These codes are typically used in a retail environment; however, they can be used for other classifications.

Long SKU Class codes are used in conjunction with Long SKU Department codes for reporting purposes. A long SKU class is assigned to an item in the L/S class (Long SKU class) field of the Item table; the system will validate your entry to this field against the Long SKU Class table.

Retail integration (external system to Order Management System): If you are using Retail Integration (external system to Order Management System) by selecting the Use Retail Integration (H26) system control value, you define a retail class within the long SKU department assigned to an item rather than a using a long SKU class. For example, retail class 10 might be Ties within Department 20 (Men’s Apparel), but within Department 30 (Women’s Apparel) class 10 might be Slacks.

As a result, when you are using the Retail Integration (external system to Order Management System), the system validates retail classes against the Retail Class table and denies access to the Work with Long SKU Class menu option. If you attempt to use the menu option, the screen displays an error message: Work with Long SKU Class Not Allowed with SCV H26.

Require long SKU class: If the Require L/S Class (I93) system control value is selected, the system requires you to enter a long SKU class when you create or maintain an item.

Long SKU elements: The entire Long SKU consists of the following elements:

• L/S Style

• L/S Vendor

• L/S Department

• L/S Class

• L/S Color

• L/S Size

• L/S Width

If the Use Retail Integration (H26) system control value is selected, the system requires you to enter a L/S style, L/S subclass, L/S department, and L/S class when you create or maintain an item.

Uploading: If the Use Retail Integration (H26) system control value is unselected, you can use the Submit Supporting Data Upload Screen (SDUP) to upload new long SKU class codes. See Importing Item-Related Supporting Data (SDUP) for an overview.
