products, V8: thousands of products because of variants?

I'm wondering if I got the following right:

I sell about 20 main products to customers. This handfull products have a lot of variants (and later there will be a lot of different BOM's to create correct MO's from sales orders, I think).

If I have a mainproduct with let's say attribs like color: blue, green; and attrib size: S, M, XL:

now the product itself is treated as a product template and there will bei 2x3=6 concrete single products that will be sold then, correct?

I'm a little bit confuesd, because my handfull products will lead to >700.000 single products if I multiply the variants (and there have to be a lot of BOM's to distinguish MO's, to get the correct products produced)

Am I correct with my hypothesis above?

If so, this setup can't be done by hand or the odoo webinterface at all. Are there any tools out there to get this done (and keep it updateable since products will change in future)?

Best regards,
