What I'm seeing with multi-variants doesn't look very efficient when compared to other systems. Here is an example.
iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C iPhone 5C comes with 3 carriers (AT&T, Verizon, and Unlocked) iPhone 5C comes in 5 colors Both come in 3 conditions (New, Refurbished, Carrier Returned) iPhone 5C now has a total of 45 different products iPhone 5 has 3 carriers and 3 conditions for a total of 9 different products. Altogether we have 54 different products.
When I view every other site, there's only 2 products in this case and you use drop downs to select the attributes. Why is this not the case in OpenERP? I only have a total of around 150 different products but my product list is over 2,000 after using variants. I can understand if OpenERP would like to track each different attribute as a different product, but at least there needs to be a way to have parent child relationships, so I can filter by top-level products and see just 150 and drill down from there. When you start talking about manufacturing, this gets out of control having each different manufacturing option a different product.
Is there a good reason for this method or am I missing a setting where I can attach sub products (children) to parent products?
Management of variants was not available through standard modules until v7-SaaS3.
Single-axis variants are available in v7-SaaS3. If you want to activate that, just go to Settings > Users and check the access right called âManage Product Variantsâ. After saving and refreshing your openerp, you will have a new menu in Sales > Products > Templates. An example is shown below.
