Title (EN) A METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR CONFIGURATING PRODUCTS
(FR) PROCEDE ET SYSTEME DE CONFIGURATION DE PRODUITS
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention relates to a method and system for configuring products, such as branded promotional products, where products may be divided into items and processes. Item parameters and process parameters may be separately specified and linked together to create a unique product where a product identifier (e.g., SKU) may be dynamically created when the product is sourced, quoted, ordered or otherwise accessed. For example, an item may involve a product to which an imprint or logo is to be affixed. A process may involve a screening printing process or other process for affixing a customer's artwork, logo or identifier. In addition, the method and system of the present invention may be applied to other applications, such as office supplies, furniture, aviation supplies, marine supplies, interior design, beauty salon and spa supplies, medical office supplies, restaurant and bar supplies, gift shops and clothing boutique, and other industries where products and services may be ordered.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé et un système permettant de configurer des produits, tels que des produits promotionnels, selon lesquels les produits peuvent être répartis en articles et en processus. Des paramètres d'article et des paramètres de processus peuvent être séparément spécifiés et associés de façon à créer un produit unique où une identification de produit (p. ex. une UGS) peut être créée de manière dynamique lorsque la source du produit est identifiée, lorsque le produit est cité, commandé ou autrement accédé. Un article peut, par exemple, concerner un produit auquel une empreinte ou un logo doit être apposé. Un processus peut être un processus de sérigraphie ou un autre processus permettant d'apposer le travail artistique, le logo ou l'identification d'un client. Le procédé et le système peuvent, par ailleurs, trouver d'autres applications, telles que des fournitures de bureau, des meubles, des fournitures de lignes aériennes, des fournitures de bateaux, l'architecture d'intérieur, des fournitures de salons de beauté, des fournitures médicales, des fournitures de bar ou de restaurant, des magasins de souvenirs, des boutiques de vêtement, et d'autres industries dans lesquelles des produits et des services peuvent être commandés.
