Setup suggestions

Document media may be broadly defined to include, for example, photographic film, paint color chip, or other physical sample.

If your product management system is entirely electronic, this attribute may be irrelevant. However, if you still maintain some documents or files in some physical form, you can use this to define where they're stored, say, with all large-format drawings or in a specific room, cabinet or drawer.
