Packaging compositions define which packaging elements belong to a product during a specific time frame. Multiple products can be assigned to a single packaging composition but the time frames during which they are assigned cannot overlap.
Packaging compositions can be created in two ways:
- Data import using a file or the API
- In the Manage Packaging Compositions application
Packaging elements can be added to packaging compositions that were imported. But it is not possible to delete or change imported items.
Packaging compositions can be created and edited in the Manage Packaging Compositions application. In this application, you can add or remove packaging elements or products that were created using the application. For these items the source system is indicated as RDP.
The information below provides in-depth explanations of some attributes of packaging compositions. To see a complete table of all of the data that packaging compositions consist of, see PackagingComposition_Template.xlsx.
