Maintaining variant structures

Maintaining Variant


A variant structure is the set of relationships between one item and one or more variant items. Within the variant structure, groups such as Mandatory, One Of Set, At Least One, One Or None, or Optional are used to specify the relationship between the main item and each variant item. With variant items linked to an item, you are able to determine which optional items in a sales order should or should not be delivered. Mandatory items in the variant structure are filled in automatically. For example, you sell bicycles. There are a number of extra features that can be delivered along with the bike itself, such as a bicycle gear, basket, baby seat, guarantee, etc. In the sales order, you can specify which of these optional items the customer wants. You can create and maintain a variant structure by going to Manufacturing/Setup/Variant.
