Part/Item Master Data

Part (also known as Item in many business processes and systems) is one of the most fundamental master data items. Parts are usually the term used during the design/manufacturing phase and generally universal enough to represent sellable SKUs, purchased, semi-finished, raw materials and everything in between. One organization’s parts are another organization’s sellable products.
