Item Segment

The most important data point in the Item segment is Part Type. It is more specific than Category and Sub-Category, and many of PDM's validation and recommendation algorithms are tied to it.

Other fields in the Item Segment are:
  1. Minimum Order Quantity
  2. Quantity per Application
  3. Quantity per Each
  4. etc.

Date Values

Item-Level Effective Date:
Date the Item is available for purchase at the current price levels

Available Date:
Date the Item is available for Sale


Publication Status

The publication status offers three options:
  1. Publish to receiver database: Products that are ready to be published
  2. Temporarily don't publish to receiver database: Products not intended for immediate publication (usually newly created or old/outdated products)
  3. Permanent inactive: Products that are discontinued. Data Receivers will get a "delete tag" when they receive ACES/PIES update files
  4. You can change the publication status of a product, select an option from the drop-down menu and click Save.
