I think Baan help is the best source of info in this regard.

The item type places the item in a group of items, so that certain
functions of the package will only apply to that item.

The item type, together with the item group, here only serves to
record default item data.

You can choose from the following item types:

Purchased
Items of this type may also be made in-house. In that case, it will not
be possible to link a bill of material or a routing sheet to the
relevant item. This kind of item is used throughout the package. The
need for purchase items may arise from the following modules:
- Material Requirements Planning (MRP)
- Master Production Scheduling (MPS)
- Project Control (PCS)
- Inventory Control (INV)

This need is converted into planned purchase orders.

Manufactured
Items of this type may be manufactured end products and subassemblies,
and even purchased items. Both bills of material and operations can be
recorded for manufactured items. A manufactured item can be used
throughout the package. The need for manufactured items may originate
from the following modules:
- Material Requirements Planning (MRP)
- Master Production Scheduling (MPS)
- Project Control (PCS)
- Repetitive Manufacturing (RPT)
- Inventory Control (INV)

This need is converted into planned production orders.

Generic
Items of this type can be used in the module "Product Configuration
(PCF)". A generic item is not a real item but a collective term for a
large number of product variants. So a product variant is a derivative of
a generic item. Consequently, it is not possible to purchase, produce
and deliver generic items for a sales order. Yet if you do want to
sell a variant of a generic item, the system will ask you to define
the item's options, so that a product variant can be configured.
Eventually, the relevant generic item will be delivered as a
customized item for the sales order in question.
The following characters are not allowed for generic item codes:
% ' " ^ \ ! @ # $ & * ( ) | / ; ~ ` ? { } [ ] < >

The reason for this is that object files generated for constraints in
the module "Product Configuration" (PCF) may not contain these characters.
Items of this type can not be process items.

Cost
Items of this type are administrative items, which cannot be held in
inventory. Cost items are used to post extra costs to an order
separately. Extra costs are, for example, accounting expenses, clearance
charges, cost of design, and freight expenses. Cost items are only used
in the following modules:
- Purchase Control (PUR)


- Sales Control (SLS)
- BAAN Service Master Data
- Formula Management (FRM)
- Production Management (PMG)

Service
Items of this type are administrative items, which cannot be held in
inventory either. Service items are used to post service-related costs.
Services are, for example: costs of maintenance and repairs. Just as
cost items, service items are only used in the following modules:
- Purchase Control (PUR)
- Sales Control (SLS)
- BAAN Service Master Data

In these modules cost and service items are:
- normally included in invoices (excluding item codes and quantities);
- reported back as ordinary items;
- included in the late payment surcharge base;
- included in the order discount base.

In the module "Sales Control (SLS)" cost and service items:
- are normally posted via the detailed purchases/sales invoiced
- are not posted separately via the invoice analysis.

Subcontracting
Items of this type also belong to the administrative items. These
items are non-physical items which are used to record subcontracting
costs. So the subcontracting item is not the item whose operation is
subcontracted. The costs posted to the subcontracting item will also
be visible as operation costs in the cost price.

Subcontracting items are used in the modules:
- Shop Floor Control (SFC) for subcontracting operations;
- Purchase Control (PUR) for "buying" subcontracted operations.

In principle, it is possible to define a separate subcontracting item
for any imaginable subcontracted operation. You can also define a
general subcontracting item, to which all subcontracting costs will be
posted.

Once you have assigned an item type to the item in question, some
combinations of item data are or are not be allowed (see the table
below).

+-------------------------------------------------------------------+
|Item Type ->|Purch./Man. Part|Generic |Cost |Service | Subcontr|
|----------------+----------------+--------+--------------+---------|
|Cost price comp.| | | | |
|with cost type | material |material| general | operat. |
|----------------+----------------+--------+--------------+---------|
|Order policy ->| free |to order| anonymous |anonymous|
|----------------+----------------+--------+--------------+---------|
|Order system ->| free |FAS/MPS/| manually | manually|
| | |MRP | | |
+-------------------------------------------------------------------+

As soon as you choose a wrong combination, the system will respond
with an error message.
