configurator = item numbers
We used configurator, but downside is that a unique item number will still need to be created for the different lengths or colour. So 1000mm piece need to be called Item A and a 1100 mm piece item B, etc. Even though they are the same product A. We have 100 mm increment in these items, so as you can imagine managing the item master will be an enormous task.
Configurator is great in delaying the creation of these items until needed and speeds up the item creation process. However a unique item per length or colour is still required.
Any other ideas?
