I think using a material specification to manage these types of items is a good solution. It allows you to:
- Collect techncial data.
- Identify suppliers.
- Participate in the NPD process similar to other materials.
- Collect various documents using both the material and the sourcing approvals.
I do recommend adding nodes to Category/Sub-Category/Group to make sure these are seperate and distinct from the rest of your materials.
Extra Credit: You may also want to add some custom validation to make sure materials from this catagory never get added into a formula. (That being said I do not think anyone will "accidently" add Clorox to a cake recipe.
We will continue to set them up as ingredients. We have set up a new taxonomy for these items and a separate workflow.
Ha yes we are hoping they won't put the Clorox in the cake mix but it might be worth looking into the custom validation at some point just to be safe!!!
