    Hi,

    SCHEDULE LINE CATEGORY:-

    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:-

    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

    Thanks,

    Hi

    Item category controls the Items in the Sales document. Each Item is controlled by its own Item category.

    The Item category determines whether Price is applicable or not, Billing is relevant or not (if relevant then it should be order related or delivery related billing) , Schedule line is allowed or not, business data can be different in Header and Item or not, completion rule applicable or not for the Item. There are many other control functions of the Item category.

    Similarly, Schedule line is controlled by its own schedule line category.

    Each Item can have one or more schedule lines. The Schedule line category determines /controls whether the schedule line is deliverable or not, availability check will be conducted or not, Requirement transfer will be placed or not, if deliverable then what is the movement type for the schedule line.

    In the IMG open your Item category and go to details, you will find various field there through which the item is controlled.

    Similarly, go to details of Schedule line category in IMG, you will find all control fields.By putting different values we control differently, provided it is logical.
