The Oracle Retail Merchandising System (RMS) item functionality is intended to support retailers across multiple verticals and geographies. It also supports a number of different types of items, including fashion styles and stock keeping units (SKUs), pack items, grocery specific items such as deposit or catch weight items, and consignment items. As such, RMS supports a significant set of attributes for an item and has a large number of required attributes, which must be defined in order to use the item for ordering and selling. This large data set was often prohibitive to importing items from an external system, because many required attributes, such as the retailer’s merchandise hierarchy, were not known to external applications.


To better support integration with external item sources, the RMS Item Induction framework was created to provide a flexible framework that is able to import item information from many different sources, at various levels of detail.  Item Induction functionality is available in the 14.1 release of RMS.


The Item Induction framework provides the flexibility to accept items with a less than complete set of attributes into an RMS staging environment, which can be used to enrich the items to a full set of attributes required to create an approved item in RMS. It also provides configurability through the use of templates to support different types of items and different methods of integration with external systems.
