      Hi,

      I try to create a product which have first a category (ex: PREMIUM and REGULAR) and then associate raw material (ex: MAPLE or OAK) to get the bom component item (ex: item 1001: PREMIUM MAPLE).

      I would like to chose first the category and then have the choice of the raw material.  I would like to keep the category isolated to use that choice in the smart item number.  How can I organize such hierarchy?

      Thank you.

        Hello Matthieu,

        Here are three approaches:

        (1) Keep it simple and at one-level, that is one option with choices “PREMIUM MAPLE”, “PREMIUM OAK”, “REGULAR MAPLE”, “REGULAR OAK”

        (2) Use the Rule Builder to set up rules to conditionally show/hide choices. With this you will want 2 options in the configuration to capture:

        • PREMIUM or REGULAR
        • the material items for “PREMIUM MAPLE”, “PREMIUM OAK”, “REGULAR MAPLE”, “REGULAR OAK”

        You would then have rules on option 1 with actions to show/hide the choices for option 2. For example, if PREMIUM is selected option 1 then show “PREMIUM MAPLE” & “PREMIUM OAK” and hide “REGULAR MAPLE” & “REGULAR OAK for option 2.

        (3) Use the Rule Builder to set up rules to have the system select the required material. With this you will want 3 options in the configuration to capture:

        • PREMIUM or REGULAR
        • MAPLE or OAK
        • the material item for “PREMIUM MAPLE”, “PREMIUM OAK”, “REGULAR MAPLE”, “REGULAR OAK”

        You would then have rules on options 1 and 2 with actions to set the choice for option 3. For example, if PREMIUM and MAPLE are selected for options 1 and 2 then set “PREMIUM MAPLE” for option 3.

        Thank you,
