Is It Possible To Create Two Separate Items, In A Single Hierarchy, With The Same EAN Number? (Doc ID 2206657.1)

Last updated on JUNE 12, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Merchandising System - Version 10.0.19 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Will RMS accommodate two different items (SKU) with the same EAN number in single hierarchy, or will the system prevent the creation of an item if the EAN number already exists?

For example, all Lipstick is sold in both the department store chain, as well as the cosmetics store chain. This product has the same EAN and supplier, but is planned in MFP (by range code) and AP (by SKU) by different planning teams and sold through different chains. The product may have different selling prices as well as different promotional and markdown strategies.
