Configurator is a tool that automates the selection and configuration of highly complex products. Highly complex products have related features and options. A relationship results when an association or correlation between the features and options or associated parts exists within its subassemblies. Configurator enables a manufacturer to configure its existing product to the detailed and specific requests of its customers.
Configurator guides users in the creation of configured end-item product through product definition (features and options), rules, and calculations. The result is a valid, highly configured product.

A configured item is a make-to-order or assemble-to-order item comprised of features requested by a customer. The Configurator module is a tool that automates the process of highly complex products that have specific features, options and calculations. This module is highly integrated and typically utilizes both the manufacturing and distribution processes extensively.

Customers upgrading their EnterpriseOne application release level from EnterpriseOne Xe or ERP8 to EnterpriseOne 9.x (9.0, 9.1 or 9.2) with or without Configurator data history might have some difficulties on how to use the Configurator module in the new E1 release due to the significant changes which occurs in this application module from EnterpriseOne Xe to current EnterpriseOne application release levels.

This KM document provides upgrade technical information and a guideline of  how to use the Configurator module after doing an upgrade to latest EnterpriseOne software application release level.
