Use this form to select items for the Standard Input Output Norms (SION). These input items are used in creating the finished products, or output items, in the SION.

When you select a bill of materials (BOM) in the SION form, the items in the BOM are automatically added as SION items. You can add or remove items in the SION items list.

When the quantity of an item that you import for an Advance Authorization (AA) incentive scheme is calculated from the BOM items in the SION, the AA items are considered related items. For information about how to add related items to the SION items list, see (IND) Related items (form).

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.
