    Item Category determines the processing of any Item/material that we enter in a sales order and in this way it also effects the procesing of any sales doc in which it is used.

    Item Category Group is one of the component which along with the Sales Doc Type, The Item Usage and Higher Level Item Category decide about the Item Category in a sales doc.

    As per definition General Item Category Group & Item Category Group both are to detrmine Item Category in Sales Document.

    the Item Category Group is used to determine Item Category.

    General item category is a broader term and used other than SD processes
