We have Product A. 

It has fields: 

Name, Height

We have Product B. 

It has fields: 

Name, Width


We want 2 different forms for product A and B. I.e. we don't want to show width field for Product A. What is correct way to handle this situation? Can we inherit from base product with field Name, and support 2 normal forms in depence of product type (A or B)?

You should use the attributes in the "Variants" tab with only one value for each according ot your example. (This is assuming you are running v7-SaaS5 or later since you didn't specify your version).

If you have only one specific attribute per product, you can achieve this on v7-SaaS3 as well.

We have from 5 to 15 different attributes in each type of product. We should put them in "Variants" by openerp convention?
