Product Attributes

Select product based on a combination of attributes and characteristics.

Product Attributes is used to select product based on a combination of attributes and characteristics such as size, color, weight, volume, smell, taste, touch, quantity, and material composition.

Use Cases

A company may sell furniture such as a shelf, for example. The group of wooden shelf inventory items may vary based on the wood type, stain or color of the finish, and the length of the shelf. Since 5 different wood types are offered, in 8 different stains and  6 varying lengths, there may be up to 240 inventory item numbers to manage all the combinations of the shelf. Product Attributes allows the user to quickly find the correct shelf by selecting the wood type, stain, and length attribute values.

Another example may be a trailer with attributes such as Year, GVWR, Axles, Tires, Stock No. and Bed Size. Select the attributes and the correct inventory items and serial numbers are returned.
