This project has been updated for Aras 11 and migrated to the new Aras Community Projects page. You can also find the code on the Aras Labs GitHub page.

Variants Management extends Aras Innovator Part-BOM and Configuration Management by adding a powerful Variants management tool that can greatly simplifies configuration management of families of parts or highly configurable complex assemblies.

An example scenario is the process of ordering a new car. The manufacturer of the car has by-design, left a few configuration choices up to the end-user; for example color, which model radio, high-performance vs. standard tires, and whether to include A/C. Some of the choices may have dependencies, and there can be mutually exclusive configuration options. The end-user is guided to only select those options that work correctly together.

Variants is how marketing, design engineering, manufacturing and the customer communicate and coordinate such that the correct car is delivered, and the final configuration will meet requirements.
