Article types group together articles with the same attributes. When you create an article master record, you must assign it to a single article type. The article type you choose determines:

  • Whether the article number can be assigned internally by the system or externally by the user

  • Number range interval to which the article number belongs

  • Whether the stocks are managed on a value basis and/or on a quantity basis

  • User departments whose data you can maintain for articles of this article type
