Product Categories - Do I need to have a "catch all" or does the parent category work as the "catch all"?

So I have defined some product categories as follows...

All Products \ Machine

All Products \ Machine \ Brand A

All Products \ Machine \  Brand B

IF a product is a Machine, but Not a Brand A or a Brand B would that simply go in the parent category of Machine or do I need a third child under machine for "all others" or "no brand" or something like that?


HI Borchert,

       In OpenERP it is allowed to tag products either under the parent categories and the child categories.

So in you scenario you can tag products to machine category as well as Bran A/Bran B and no need of creating

extra categories.

But if I wanted to associate a pricelist to the machines that are NOT brand A or brand B and are categrized as the parent which is Machine, would a pricelist rule include the children of the parent?  

My main concern is whether I need a separate Machine Child Category of "Other" or not to be able to associate a pricelist to the other machines that don't have a brand.  Hope that makes sense....

Surprised there has been no responses to this last clarification.
