Subject Re: Delivery schedules for product categories
Date Wed, 24 Oct 2018 05:59:30 GMT
What are we trying to accomplish?
We want to setup with ofbiz a weekly subscription based food delivery
business.
In order to complete the order, the customer has to take some decisions:

   - # days; for how many days of the week do I want to receive weekly
   servings? Example: 3 days
   - # people; for how many people am I ordering food? Example: 4 people

This information tells the system the size of the weekly food kit. 3 days x
4 people = 12 servings

To complete the order we need to know which servings (or dishes) are being
packed into the food kit.
Ofbiz shall offer a proposed kit of 3 days worth of servings for 12 people
(can be done with the sequence number in category / item roll-up)
But the customer should be able to change the servings within the kit. I
consider now to create 12 unique food kit part numbers; one for each
possible combination of #days and # servings. (is this the best option?)
There are several challenges I have not found the right answer for.

   - The Food Kit part is best configured as:
      - Finished Good / Virtual/ Variant
      - Finished Good / Variant
      - Configurable Product / Variant (is this even possible?
      - Configurable Product only
      - Marketing Package
      - Any other?
   - Weekly planning of food kit; the customer should only see and
   configure the food kit delivery of next week, but also the possibilities of
   food kit deliveries the following 3 weeks

I hope this explains better what we are trying to achieve and thank you for
helping.

Wolfgang
