We have a situation where we want to identify an object as something we sell. There are at least two ways we might go.
1. It seems that marking them as a Service Part would fit the bill nicely as the documentation defines that object as a "record of a component or assembly in the bill of material of a product that is manufactured and shipped to a customer." Which is pretty much what I need. However it also seems we have to buy a Service Module (or something?) to be able to use this part designation. (perhaps I am mistaken?). I don't see these parts as having a different lifecycle as our regular parts.
2. Another route would be to create an attribute indicating if this object could be sold. Probably a Yes/No type of selection, defaulted to No (for us it would be). This is a good solution since I think we would be able to use this in a search.
I wonder, what would be the best path for us to take, any recommendations/insights?
