    Batch Classification: batch classification functionality to store specific batch data (such as active substance content, weight, or technical data) not contained in the batch master record. Classification of batches is mandatory if you want to use the batch determination feature

    Generally used for product, where there will be fluctuation in quality percentage like Pharma, Chemicals

    Material Classification: describe change masters by means of characteristics and their characteristic values. If you group together similar change masters into classes according to your own criteria (characteristics), this can help you find a change master quickly in the system

    Used for materials where there are lot of choices choose and price depends on the variants choosen....

    Ex.....while purchasing a car will get optins like Pwer drive on or off, 1000 to 1500 CC, tyres, billing be made accordingly with the choosen variants....
