81204-04 Product Dimension

Product and Product Master

Product

is simply product with no further break down specifically like size. Example: If C001 Computer PC is having size 22 Inches and another computer with size 20 inches then there will be two different item codes and hence we cannot use same item code for multiple sizes or different criteria. see intro here

Also this simple product can be added as sub BOM to main product master BOM item.

Product Master

To over come above problem where we can define extended Product variants which can be used with Product Dimension and Product Configuration technology

Dimension base Configuration Product Dimension: Is the dimensions creations from options available. Example: ConfColSizeStyle, CofSizeStyle, SizeStyle, ColorStyle so on

  • Configuration: Manual no like part no or brand name can be used here
  • Color
  • Size
  • Style: Usually in retail like different styles of Shoes

Product Configuration:

  • Predefined Variant: Very simple as it combines all the dimensions for generation of various Product Variants data entered. Example: If Product dimension is SizeCol with values Size: 22,21 and color: Blue and black then ax suggests variants as: 22-Blue, 22-black, 21 Blue and 21 black.

Note: Remember steps for 1st time: Product Dimension (set values) ->Product variants (Variant suggests)

  • Dimension Based Configuration: Limitation for above where further combinations are added only to be generated not every combination. Example: a PC Motherboard supports only i5 and i7 processors
  • Constrained based/Rule base configuration: Extension of dimension based where Product modeling is done. Example: If PC with i5 and i7 are added then power configuration must be changed

Best feature of Product master is when new Product dimension is added then various combinations are suggested which are called variants this can be renamed as if one item code C001 Computer is having many items under.

Path: Product Information Management->Setup->Dimension and variant groups->Product Dimension Groups

Parameters:

Active: Enable which dimension is required.

For Purchase/Sale prices: Enable during receipt and/or issue

Use Number nomenclature (NoYes): To generate number as per specified format field specified along.

Usage
