Examples of Items:
Items have Item Numbers and an assigned Category that is associated with a Lifecycle type. Changing or updating an Item follows the change control rules and the type of Lifecycle its category is in.
Items may contain sub-items. If sub-items or sub-assemblies also contain multiple items, then the top item or the top assembly contains a multi-level BOM (Bill of Materials), which is displayed as a table on the Item's page.
