Expandable CONFIGURATION CONTROL is used by companies who manufacture standard assemble-to-order products with customer-selected features and options. Configuration Control provides faster, mistake-proof quoting and order entry while eliminating the engineering overhead involved in maintaining hundreds or thousands of custom bills of material. Configuration Control has standard and unique product configurations, allowing you to sum up the costs of their components, set configuration prices, review configuration gross margins and check availability of configuration options. Features and options for a product are predefined, allowing sales representatives and customer service personnel to enter accurate, timely quotes and sales orders without the need for engineering to review each item. Configuration Rules can be defined for including or excluding options based on other options selected for inclusion in a configuration. Each rule includes an Informational, Warning or Stop Message that is displayed when the rule is executed and an inclusion or exclusion exception is found.
