Based on the ideas of the attached document, we are generating a hierarchy of products with inheritance of product attributes.

The idea is to share attibutes as much as possible, modelling the reality in a way similar to prototype object systems. Let say for example you define a car, with atributtes like motor type or number of passengers, sharing this attributes in all cars.

Additionally, products attributes could be declare in a higher point in the hierarchy, but concrete defined in leaf products. Using the cars example, at the car level you can define a brand attribute, that will be defined in the specific cars low in the tree

This could be very helpful in large collections, where the attribute values are defined once and in only one place for many products, like for example colours for t-shirts.

I am attaching the module, since it is not published till now. Any comment or suggestion will be appreciated

I have the same problem ( our products are windows, doors, solar protection systems, shutters,… ).

When someone has started some development in this area, we want to cooperate.



With kind regards,

Onderwerp: configurable products



I am buying and selling products that have various options.

For example office chairs. They have a model (the product) and various options to enhance the product.

leather seat (6 leathers), imitation leather (12 leathers) 4d arm-pads, seat in color (30+ colors), polished aluminium base, counter seat version etc etc, can be up to approx 15 options.

I have searched the forum and the documentation, but cant find a clear explanation on how to configure this in Odoo.

Product variants isnt really an option imo since it would mean thousands of variants with all the seat types and a pain in the ass to add one to an order.

on the forum Luke pointed me towards

but after installing that it doesnt seem to make a difference.

In other words, i probably have no clue how that works :)


anyone a suggestion on how to do a product configurator/generator. (conditional would be even better.. a chair can not have a colored seat, leather seat AND an imitation leather seat.
