The way that characteristics have been defined risks clogging the database with unnecessary data. For example, I had to add 8 different item characteristics to all of our Finished Goods for production requirements. So the only place these characteristics are needed is on work orders.
I noticed that each time a sales order is entered for a finished goods, it automatically populates each sales order line with a full set of characteristics, which is not needed. This means 8 records per sales order line.
I recommend that we add checkboxes to the characteristic definition panel where we could identify where the characteristic is to be used, for example sales order, work order, etc.
Otherwise, we risk having a lot of obsolete data in the data base.
