    General Item cat Group : by default NORM ( depending upon the material type system automatically proposes item category Group in material master system takes this general item category group as one of the factor to determine item category of line item )

    Ex: Standard Item, Text Item, Value item, Free of Charge item

    In addition to NORM these are item category groups

    0001 Make to Order

    0002 Configuration

    0005 Mile Stone Billing

    BANC Individual P.O

    BANS Third Party item

    ERLA Structure – Material above

    LUMF Structure – Material below

    LEAS Leasing

    VERP Packing material

    LEIH Returnable Packaging material

    LEIS Service / delivery

    Hi,

    Item category helps in subdividing the materials like it is third party material, configurable material. Also Item category group helps in determining the Item category. where as general Item category broadly defines whether it is a packing material,where as Item category still subdivides and tells whether it is returnable packaging or just pacakaging material.

    In most cases it is the same, but if there is a scenario where the same material is treated as a raw material by PP/MM department and as a finished product by SD department. Then the general item category group will be ROH and normal item category group will be NORM.

    Hope I was helpful.
