Item categories in oracle apps R12

What is the use of Item Categories?
Ø      Use categories and category sets to group your items for various reports and programs.
Ø      A category is a logical classification of items that have similar characteristics.
Ø      A category set is a distinct grouping scheme and consists of multiple categories.
Ø      Some application modules, Inventory, for example require that all items are assigned to a category.
Ø      The user specifies a default category for this purpose in each of these modules.
