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.
