The Manager UI
The Manager UI is used to
- defining libraries of products
- uploading assets to the product libraries
- define the logic rules of product assembly from parts, accessories and materials within each product library
- define the mapping of assets to parts, accessories and materials
- define the mapping of parts, accessories and materials to SKUs
- define the environment in which the product assembly takes place
- managing localization to supported languagesets
Defining libraries of products
Concept of Product Libraries is a way to manage a large set of products with more ease and to limit the amount of complexity in the manager view. This permits also many people to work on configuration in parallel as two persons can work on two product libraries without interfering with each others work
Uploading assets to the product libraries
Asset management is a critical function to the configuration by allowing you to import and manage files needed by configurator for visually representing your products
Define the logic rules of product assembly from parts, accessories and materials within each product library
Logic rules comprise with two different configuration steps that relate to each other. one is the parent-child relationship in the product tree and then the property set configuration per item of the product tree.
Define the mapping of assets to parts, accessories and materials
Content Mapping is an important part of the work where assets are mapped into the configuration
Define the mapping of parts, accessories and materials to SKUs
Sales Code Mapping is crucial part of connecting the configuration to include pricing and then ordering with e-commerce platform of your choice
Define the environment in which the product assembly takes place
Environment allows each product library to define the "surrounding scene" for the products that are in the same product library. This allows your products to have their own settings on how they are lit and how the scene looks like.
Managing localization to supported languagesets
Localization is an important part of making the configurator appeal to your consumers. Note that we only test left-to-right text direction in our automated testing at the moment, while we support technically also languages that would be written in different direction normally.
