Product Catalog

The product catalog is a set of information about individual models. Models are specific versions or various configurations of an asset. Asset managers use the product catalog as a centralized repository for model information.

A detailed and well-maintained product catalog can coordinate with service catalog, asset, procurement, request, contract, and vendor information.

Models published to the product catalog are automatically published to the service catalog. The service catalog includes information about goods (models) and services. A model may be listed more than once if the model is available from multiple vendors. Models are included with the Asset Management application.

Keep the following in mind when working with the product catalog.
  • A product catalog item can be linked to multiple vendor catalog items or to a single model.
  • A model can only have one product catalog item.
  • A vendor catalog item can only have a single product catalog item.
