Maintain item search details and context over the different selections in BUC

It would help productivity in BUC if the item search feature remembered the selections previously made. There is the breadcrumb offering some persistence, but if the user jumps to Orders or anywhere else, all the item search selections are cleared and must be re-entered next time around.

How will this idea be used?

As a fulfillment manager, I often search for my key items under the BUC Inventory tab. It would be wonderful if the previously entered selections (Enterprise, SKU, Nodes) were persisted and I would not need to re-enter them every single time.
