Ability to import partial Bills of Material or Need: Real Time Item Substitution functionality

Requested Functionality: Ability to import partial Bills of Material (BOM’s) or Need: Real Time Item Substitution functionality in Oracle Configurator Cloud
 
Business Case: We have huge and complex BOM’s with millions of items in it. Importing such a huge amount of data impacts development in terms of time it takes to import models, write rules, generate logic, test and publish those models to host application. Also as we belongs to furniture industry, frequent introductions of new options necessitates model refreshes and the above pain points impact the ability to introduce changes often and quickly.
 
Also at runtime it negatively impacts user experience as it may not be possible to launch such huge models or even if it is possible the amount of time it takes will be unacceptable. User experience is also impacted by the amount of time it takes between clicks and time it takes to save a configuration back to order lines.
