Item Catalog is used to add descriptive information to items and to partition the item master into different groups of items which share common characteristics.
Once the process of defining and cataloging items is complete, you can:
·         Provide standard language in referring to items, enabling companies in the same industry to communicate effectively without needing to name their items identically.
·         Store a detailed description of what an item is without having to embed that meaning in the item number.
·         Use descriptive elements as search criteria for items.
·         Update the item description with a concatenated value of the item catalog group information.
·         Find common existing parts when developing an engineering prototype.
