I was wondering if there was an easier way to create sub products then manually creating each one and then associating to a configurable product.

However instead of manually creating the simple products and associating them, what if I go to a matrix screen which shows something like this -
You check off each option that you want and Magento automatically creates all the variation combination sub-products for you. Example, if I checked off S and M for Sizes and Red and Blue for Colors I should have the following sub products created for me -
Our current ecommerce framework which we wrote in Java does this for you so that the user does not have to go through the cumbersome task of creating each product. I guess Magento’s solution for this is the import feature. Still would be nice for it to be handled this way. Any suggestions?
