2Overview of ProductAdministrationThis chapter provides an overview of product administration. It includes the following topics: “Product Administration” on page 19 “Roadmap for Creating Simple Products with Attributes” on page 20 “Roadmap for Creating Products with Components” on page 21 “When to Use Siebel Configurator, Compatibility, Eligibility, and Product Validation Rules” on page 24 “About Working with Product Administration” on page 25Product AdministrationThis guide explains product administration for a number of different types of products. You only haveto read the chapters that apply to the types of product your company sells.Simple Products Without AttributesThis is a product that only comes in one form, such as a book. The customer does not make anydecisions about features of the product.To create simple products without attributes, read Chapter 3, “Basic Product Administration.”Product BundlesA product bundle is a group of products sold together. It cannot be customized.For example, you might offer customers vacation packages that include airfare, hotelaccommodations for a specific number of days, and specific special events, all for one price.To create this sort of product, you must read: Chapter 3, “Basic Product Administration” Chapter 5, “Product Bundles”Simple Products with AttributesA product with attributes has features that the customer can choose but does not have componentsthe customer can choose.For example, a customer buying a t-shirt might be able to choose the shirt’s color and its size. Theshirt has two attributes, color and size. Each of these attributes has several possible values, such aswhite, gray, black, and S, M, L, XL.Siebel Product Administration Guide Version 8.1/8.219

Overview of Product Administration Roadmap for Creating Simple Products withAttributesFor information about creating simple products with attributes, see “Roadmap for Creating SimpleProducts with Attributes” on page 20.Products with ComponentsThis is a product with components that a customer can select.For example, a customer buying a computer might have to select a mouse, a floppy disk drive, amonitor, and other components.For information about creating products with components, see “Roadmap for Creating Products withComponents” on page 21.Product CompatibilityYou can define global rules that specify which products and promotions are compatible with eachother.For more information, see Chapter 22, “Product and Promotion Eligibility and Compatibility.”Product EligibilityYou can define global rules that specify which customers are eligible to buy products and promotions.For more information, see Chapter 22, “Product and Promotion Eligibility and Compatibility.”Product Validation RulesFor special cases where you want to create custom business services to check the compatibility ofproducts, you can use product validation rules.For more information, see Chapter 23, “Creating Validation Rules for Customizable Products.”TranslationsIf you are working with any of these types of products and you have to translate the interface intomultiple languages, you must also read: Chapter 4, “Multilingual Translations for Product Data.”Roadmap for Creating Simple Productswith AttributesA simple product with attributes has features that the customer can choose but does not havecomponents the customer can choose.For example, a customer buying a t-shirt might be able to choose the shirt’s color and its size. Theshirt has two attributes, color and size. Each of these attributes has several possible values, such aswhite, gray, black, and S, M, L, XL.To create a simple product with attributes, perform the following tasks:20Siebel Product Administration Guide Version 8.1/8.2

Overview of Product Administration Roadmap for Creating Products with Components Create the product. You create this in the same way you create other simple products. SeeChapter 3, “Basic Product Administration.” Define the attributes of the product. You must define what attributes the product has andthe valid values for each attribute. See Chapter 6, “Products with Attributes”For a more advanced method of defining attributes, see Chapter 7, “Product Attributes withBusiness Component Domains.” Decide whether to use the default user interface or create a custom user interface. Forinformation about the default interface, see “About Default and Custom Siebel Configurator UserInterfaces” on page 139. Design the custom user interface. If you decide to create a custom interface, see Chapter 11,“Creating Custom Sieb
