Create products from other products

Reported by dogmatic69 | August 28th, 2012 @ 06:47 PM | in Next

Have a habtm self join to save the relation.

You might be selling dining chairs and tables. This would allow you to specify a new product such as a dining set that consists of 6x chairs and 1x table.

The relation would be something along the lines of

id, name, ...
1, chair
2, table
3, set

id, product_id, other_product_id, quantity, created, modified
1, 3, 1, 6, ... // 6 chairs
2, 3, 2, 1, ... // one table

The cost and price comes from the sum of all the products linked, but can be overloaded (cost could possibly remain calculated from the other products).

Other things like stock could be removed directly from the related products, and the stock status for the set (id 3) could be calculated based on the availability of the other dependent products.

I don't think it would be required to create products from these products. It would just be one level deep.
