I've succesfully implemented this in Release 7. Unfortunately I don't recall the specific differences between 6 and 7 that well, so all I can do is describe what I did in 7 and hope it will help you.
I started with a secondary as suggested by Antonio. From discreet domains, or code files, users can populate these fields on the create template. Depending on the values entered on the template, my "Apply defaults to buffer" user exit generates an item description which is available to view and modify in the preview window before the item is created. It has really helped us keep all of the Item descriptions consistent.
Hope you can use this info

Subject: [MAPICS-L] R6 Integrator question
We are at Release 6. I need to be able to build a part description
based on the attributes of the part, using a series of drop down
selection boxes. For example, from drop down box 1 "gear motor" is
selected, then drop down box 2 displays for a selection of applicable
horsepowers, then drop down box 3 displays for a selection of applicable
gear ratios, then drop down box 4 displays for a selection of applicable
bore sizes. From these selections, I would generate a part description
of "GMTR,.25HP,8.2:1,20MM" to accurately describe this part - a .25
horsepower gear motor with a 8.2:1 gear ratio and a 20mm bore.
Is there a way to do this within Integrator? If so, how might I best
accomplish this? My knowledge of Integrator is somewhat limited, so the
more detail you can provide, the better.
