Product Option -> modify model number?


Recommended Posts

I need to know if there's a contribution like this is available or how to accomplish this:


I'm working on a shop that sells brake kits. The rotors come in 4 flavors:




Slotted & Drilled


Each product has a product number. Say, part number 10001 for an Ford Mustang. When the customer selects which type of brake rotor they want, I would like an alpha numeric character appended to the end of the model number to specify which part they're looking for. For example:


Ford Mustang Brake Kit

10001 = Plain

10001-S = Slotted

10001-D = Drilled

10001-X = Slotted & Drilled


This way, there aren't 4x the amount of products listed when in fact, it's only X amount of products and the customer just gets to choose which option they want with their product.

That's a last ditch possibility. The client has heavy emphasis on not too many categories. And considering how many manufacturers there are... multiplied by all the models of cars... the list is already enormous. I'd really like to see a programmatic way to solve this.


Thanks for the input tho!
