We have a scenario here. We have hundreds of same type of material with different characteristics. We do not want to maintain those many material master records in the system. I know we can define characteristics and assign them to a class can reduce the count of material master records that way. My question is, can we utilize classification functionality without batch management? Also, when user creates a PO with different characteristics, how would vendor come to know about what characteristics of that material is ordered. Can we have those characteristics on PO print or in an annexure? If yes, then which table should be make use of to fetch the data? Kindly suggest.
