English term or phrase:discrete goods
Makers of discrete goods — apparel, furniture, and other style-oriented products — as well as grocery and other mass-market retailers are only now looking at demand-driven approaches.
Then there's the question of whether the goods we're dividing can be cut up, or not. If the item(s) can be divided at will (like that cake), we say they're continuous goods; otherwise (like the Mona Lisa), let's call them discrete goods. http://voyager.dvc.edu/~sneedham/07concepts.html
