    An assortment defines which materials a store, a distribution center or a customer can be supplied with at any given time and can therefore be used to check purchase orders and sales orders.

    Every retail site is assigned one (and only one) assortment. This assortment is created when the retail site is created, but is not assigned materials until the listing stage, where materials are assigned to assortments using the assortment modules to which these materials belong.

    A customer can be assigned more than one assortment per sales area. These assortments are maintained and assigned manually.

    This component allows you to create merchandise assortments and assortment modules and assign articles to them. Articles can be automatically assigned directly to assortments as a result of checking rules during article maintenance or assortment maintenance functions. Alternatively, you can manually assign articles to assortment modules and then in turn assign the modules to assortments. In both cases, the system automatically generates listing conditions for each valid combination of article and assortment.

    By assigning assortments to sites you control which assortments u2014 and which articles u2014 a store can purchase or sell. A site cannot purchase or sell an article that is not contained in one of its assortment.

    When you create listing conditions, you also specify a listing period. This determines the timeframe during which sites can procure and sell the articles.

    Listing conditions

    The assignment of the individual articles to assortments is recorded in what are called listing conditions.

    These listing conditions contain the following:

    The periods of time for which an article is to be assigned to an assortment

    Inclusive or exclusive assignment (that is, whether an article is to be listed or excluded from listing)

    The number of the module which caused the listing conditions to be generated

    Whether the listing is for a promotion listing

    Whether the module is assigned to a rack jobber

    Whether an article is listed as a component of a structured article

    In the case of manual listing using manually created assortment modules, the system creates listing conditions based on the assignment of the assortment module to an assortment.

    In the case of automatic listing, the system uses listing rules to create listing conditions.
