Paladin Rule-Based Configurator

PRBC_logo2Paladin Logic’s Rule-Based Configurator is an extensive and powerful add-on xTuple package designed to provide make-to-order capability. Rather than define an item for each variation on a product, you can use the Paladin Rule-Based Configurator to organize variations as sets of options which can apply to many items.  Make-to-order quotes and orders are fully integrated with xTuple’s line item entry screens, making option selection simple.

Features Overview

Here is an overview of some of the capabilities and features the Paladin Rule-Based Configurator has to offer:

  • Define and assign an unlimited number of options for sold items which are selected at the time of quoting or ordering.
  • Create simple and nested rules (of arbitrary depth) to control which options may be ordered with other options.
  • Evaluate rules on the fly as the order takes place.
  • Convert option-aware quotes to sales orders.
  • Adjust work order materials requirements automatically when work orders are exploded (can add and remove materials).
  • Manage option-aware inventory using lot/serial control.

Conveniently select make-to-order options on the quote and sales order. 

In the screen to the left, the user has selected the standard toolbox option for the line item. The user could also have selected the deluxe toolbox, or any other toolbox option assigned to the item. With split capability, the user can even assign both a standard and deluxe toolbox to the line item. Any number of options may be selected from this view.

Once options and rules are defined, your sales team will be empowered to know – right from the quote or sales order screen, without having to call you or anyone on the production floor – what custom make-to-order products your customers can purchase and whether there are ever any rule exceptions. Privileged users may override the rules, if desired.

Requisite Features

The Paladin Rule-Based Configurator requires xTuple version 4.3.1 or later.  We strongly recommend the use of Job Costing in PostBooks or lot/serial control in xTuple Distribution or Manufacturing Editions to maintain a detailed inventory of which items have which options.
