Item table in Business Central has several functions, such as creating non-stock items and creating expense items. The main purpose is to standardize the item numbers used throughout the system. This is essential even though there is no true inventory moving through.
Within the item card, users can set up various planning policies for their items for the system to achieve the optimal planning cycle. Also, reorder points are allotted for the specific items, using the fields in the planning tab. Furthermore, on the item card, the users could also specify if the specific item will be lot and/or serial-controlled through the system. You could do this by populating the data in the item tracking tab.
Finally, users can associate various cycle count intervals and quickly review when the last physical and check account took place for this item under the warehousing tab. On the ribbon, different options relate directly to how to add additional information to the item card. This includes adding extended text, creating sales pricing and purchase pricing hierarchies along with creating stock-keeping units.
