What happens when I run a product configurator?

Running a product configurator is rather like answering a few questions from an expert. The expert then takes your answers and creates what you want from them. A typical session has three parts:

In part 1, you are prompted to supply answers to some questions.

In part 2, the product configurator analyses your answers and, in conjunction with the 'rules' built into the product configurator, creates all the information needed for the product structure. If you wish, you can review this information prior to creating the product structure.

In part 3, the information created in part 2 is translated into an equivalent product structure. Once this is done, the product structure appears in your catalogue just as if you had entered it manually. The manufacturing cost of the structure would also have been calculated for you.
