  • Name - name of original or represented product. Hyperlink leads to represented product configuration.
  • Pack Qty - quantity of product in the package, for example 6 bottles in the pack. Helps to organize storing and selling of packed products. Pack quantity for original product should always be equal to 1
  • Parts - initial number of parts. The value is used to calculate and distribute original product quantity to all represented products.
  • Unit Of Measure - default unit of measure used for calculation of estimated quantity of represented product.

    • Parts of the Whole - all parts are summed and total quantity is distributed according the part: Estimated Qty = Total Qty * Part / Sum Of All Parts

      In example below, estimated quantity of second product WATCH_1 is calculated as 50 = 100 * 2 / ( 1 + 2 + 1):

      Representing Products Unit Of Measure - Parts of the Whole

    • Percentage of Qty in Stock - estimated quantity is exact percentage value of total quantity: Estimated Qty = Total Qty * Part / 100

      In example below, estimated quantity of second product WATCH_1 is calculated as 25 = 100 * 25 / 100:

      Representing Products Unit Of Measure - Percentage of Qty in Stock

    • Exact Qty - estimated quantity is equal to given exact value

      In example below, estimated quantity of second product WATCH_1 is just taken from Part value:

      Representing Products Unit Of Measure - Exact Qty

    • Percentage (Extra Virtual Qty)- estimated quantity is exact percentage value of total quantity. However this quantity considered to be virtual which is not deducted from physical quantity: Estimated Qty = Total Qty * Part / 100

      In example below, estimated quantity of second product WATCH_1 is calculated as 25 = 100 * 25 / 100, but quantity of last product is still equal to total quantity:

      Representing Products Unit Of Measure - Percentage (Extra Virtual Qty)

  • Position - priority of getting quantity for the product. In case total required estimated quantity is greater then physical total quantity, products with higher position gets quantity first.

    In example below, estimated quantity of third product WATCH is calculated as 5 = 100 - (70 + 25), in spite of 50 is used as required quantity of this product. This is because position of third product is lower:
