Value List Best Practices

I think that it is easier to create a table with a field for value lists and create a layout where users can add, delete, and edit the value list options.

 

That is a more professional option that having users edit value lists, in my opinion.

 

Regardless, of whether you agree with that or not, my question is this.

 

If I have a value list for production status and another value list for customer status with each list having different and unrelated values, should I make a table for each list? I think the answer is no, because the different records would seemingly connect unrelated values for the lists. I cannot think of when that would be a problem, but it seems like a bad practice.

 

Please avise.
