There are seven types of system-defined attributes available: Style, Color and Size, Size Brick, Season, Brand, and Price Matrix.

These attributes are typically vendor-defined and are critical when Purchase Orders are processed and submitted to many vendors. Users can also define size bricks to easily add new items in an entire size range into a Purchase Order or during Merchandise Receiving.

Size Brick

This function allows the user to create a size brick that can be used to quickly create a group of items from the Purchase Order or Merchandise Receiving screen. When creating an item under the purchase order (or Merchandise Receiving), if the user selects a size brick, then the new item is created in all the sizes of the size brick and listed below for the user to choose from.

Creating a size brick is the same as going into the Attributes and selecting the size from the list of available sizes that are displayed if the size brick includes sizes that have not been previously established, a New Size can be defined.
