At the very beginning I would like to email list clarify two concepts, combination goods and package goods. Combination commodities refer to commodities that are artificially combined with several separately sold commodities for combined sale. The combined commodity itself is also an independent saleable entity. The packaged goods are different. The packaged goods themselves are managed with "sets" as the smallest unit in the production and supply. From the manufacturer's production, the platform's purchase to the supplier or post-sales are all sold in sets,
the maintenance and management of combined email list commodities and common commodities are consistent, and no special treatment is required, because at the sales level, they are all SKUs of one dimension. The most critical to the realization of combined commodity sales is: Commodity Portfolio Relationship Management Front-end inventory synchronization of combined products Combined product order processing (forward and reverse - reverse is easy to ignore) 2. The relationship between front and back office products In the design of the front-end commodity library, there is a very key field - external related products (out_id).
Through this field, we can establish the relationship between the front-end sales orders and the back-end delivery orders (package orders). It is usually recommended to directly use the code of the back-end product (the product in the OMS-product management) as the out_id of the front-end product. As a result, after the front-end sales are created and pushed to the supply chain order center (OMS), commodity conversion can be performed. Therefore, it also requires the establishment of a complete commodity file on the supply chain side before the commodity is put on the shelves for sale.
