Value group is an important component of inoERP and extensively used by many modules/extensions to validate & control what a user can enter in a select field. You can use a single value group across modules/extensions for many different fields. You can use the same value group to multiple fields in a single form.

For each value group value, you define a code that is stored in database. You can show either the value or a description to users during data entry in a form.

A simple example of value group is a product group. A company that deals with computer business can define a value group as product with value as Laptop, Tablet & Desktop.
To represent different components of desktop the company can define another group with values as CPU, Mother Board, cabinet, etc.
