With this feature, you can create the dimension characteristics (such as size, color characteristics), assign a characteristic type using transaction WRFCHVALTYPE, and maintain their values using the new characteristic value storage of IS-RETAIL or using transaction CT04. Later, you can display these characteristic values in various business process documents or transactions.

If you want to use separate value storage to define characteristic values for a characteristic, you must enter a characteristic type for the characteristic. The system checks whether these characteristics already exist for the characteristic type and displays the existing characteristics of the same type.
