Use this form to select related items for the items that are set up for Standard Input Output Norms (SION). The related items are used to determine the importable quantity of other items that are included in the same bill of materials (BOM).


If the allowable importable quantity of an item that is included in a BOM is dependent on the import of another item that is included in the same BOM, the dependent item is considered to be a related item. For example, an export manufacturer of shoes consumes 2.2 pounds of rubber sole to manufacture 15 pairs of shoes, per the SION. The manufacturer is allowed to import heels based on the consumption of rubber sole. In this scenario, the heels are the input item for the shoes, and the rubber sole is the related item.

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