How to allocate codes to cosmetic materials for material management ?
I sort cosmetic materials into 8 different categories for material management. They are:
1. Oil Base: artificial oil, semi-artificial oil and natural oil.
2.Water Base: polylol, water dispersion liquid etc.
3.Surfactants: cleanser, emulsifier and solubilizer.
5.Powder Base: inorganic powder, organic powder ( Carbon Base and Silicon Base ).
6.Functional Additives: anti-oxidant, preservative, light stabilizer, neutralizer, salt, dyestuff etc.
7.Efficacious Ingredients: natural ingredients( Herbal Ingredients, Animal Ingredients and Mineral Ingredients ) and
artificial ingredients( Artificial ingredients and semi-artificial ingredients ).
8.Perfume and Fragrance
Then, I allocated each of categories a character code and give every material a number in different categories. Finally, I used these codes to distinguish different files of materials.
Do you think what I mentioned above is scientific ? Do you have any idea of how to sort cosmetic materials into different categories and allocate each of them a code for material management ? Or what do your company do dealing with this kind of problem ?
I really want to know about that, and I really need some suggestions for material management.
