Schedule line category and item category

Hi all,

Can some body explain what is the use and differences between Schedule line category and item category?

Where exactly they come into picture when a sales cycle is done? it would be very helpful.

Thanks in advance.

Schedule line Category determines the Schedule lines for the Line item, it will determine whether the Item is relevant for Delivery or not

Transfer of Requirements are also controlled

Availability check at the Sales order is controlled with the Indicator set at SCHEDULE LINES

For Third Party processing, the Purchase requisition is created based on the Setting at schedule lines

Together with the ITEM CATEGORY , the schedule lines determine whether the Transaction is Relevant for MRP or not In the Transaction code VOV5


Item category is a significant part in processing the sales document

Item category determines whether particular item is relevant for Delivery ot not,

Whether item is relevant for the Billing

In Determine the Availability and TOR Item category plays an important role, for example the Availability check at DELIVERY will be taken place based on the DELIVERY ITEM CATEGORY

Some Fnctionalities like OUTPUT, TEXT, PARTNER, INCOMPLETION are controlled

DIP which in the ITEM CATEGORIES is the Main Integration Between SD and PS
