Suppose there is a product, that varies in some characteristic. As for example, the bag is available in several colors. There are five simple products respectively.
We want to group simple products and create configurable with these items as selections.
It is necessary to create configurable product and assign simple ones to it via Admin.
- configurable and simple products should belong to the same attribute set

- each simple product must have unique attribute value or values assigned
Having created configurable product, one has to link associated simple ones to it. The system offers the list of possible selections, automatically detecting simple products that have configurable attribute attached.
