Hi guys, so, a very short general question of Spryker datamodelling decision: Why is it that product relations and other stuff (e.g. product labels) by default are defined on abstract product level only in Spryker, and not on concrete level? From a real-world point of view it makes much more sense to connect concrete products with each other (think for example about different sizes of different items are related to each other, but only very specific sizes)

    its not asking for help, so I thought here would be the correct place... πŸ€” πŸ˜„ I can repost it in if you think it would get a proper answer there

    Usually it is based on real life modeling, usually you would care (as a customer) that this cable and this camera are related, but the megapixels of the camera and the length of the cable are irrelevant in this case.

    Product labels are there to be shown also on search results mainly, which show product abstracts and not product concretes

    @ULL9CA6CB mhmm I thought about for example a relation between bolts and nuts... Both available in the variant sizes 5, 6, 7, 8, 9... etc., and exactly size 5 of the bolt is related to size 5 of the nut, and doing this kind of stuff is not possible in Spryker out of the box because Spryker just thinks about abstract products, which (in my real world πŸ˜„ ) is not a real-world way of seeing this πŸ˜•

    so what you basically say is that the bolt in size 5 and in size 9 are different abstract products from your point of view, is that correct?

    Seems like this is the case for OBI, Toom, Hornbach, etc.
