You can define product item classifications and classification hierarchies that can be used within Sterling Order Management System Software for actions such as sourcing, associating services, determining shipping preferences, obtaining a list of items for ordering, and so on.

By defining a classification you identify an item attribute as having a specified use in Sterling Order Management System Software.

You can also define hierarchical item groupings for a classification. These groupings can be used to further refine the items affected by classification purpose.
