A client of ours would like to represent their product base in a particular way (one of two particular ways in fact). I would like to know if magento is capable of doing it.
Can magento represend product variants by individual SKUs - for example a T-Shit product has two colour variants, ‘green’ and ‘blue’. Can magento assign SKUs to both the ‘green’ and ‘blue’ products?
Can magento assign product hierarchies? As an alternative to the solution above ^, would it be possible to have the ‘T-Shirt’ as the parent product (without any price or SKU assigned) and then have the variants (’green’ and ‘blue’) as child products represented by individual SKUs?
