Configurator Modeling

In today's business environment, customers are demanding products that are tailored to their unique specifications. Successful companies must provide customized versions of products with shortened lead times. The Oracle Configurator Cloud is a powerful guided selling and configuration product that enables flexible modeling of configurable, multi-option, and customizable products and services.

Build Configurator Models in an Intuitive Development Environment

    Leverage a Dynamic Design Environment

  • Utliize an intuitive development environment with the configurator modeling environment (CME) for building and maintaining configurator models, including the model structure (all possible options), rules, and user interface behavior.
  • Supplement the Model with Guided Selling Questions

  • Simplify the configuration process by adding high-level questions to the model and tying the answers to one or more option selections via rules, directing the end users to the right or optimal solution.
  • Build Model Rules

  • With a constraint engine and AI solver "under the hood," modelers have a wide variety of rules to leverage, including simple defaults and bidirectional constraints. Groovy can be used to create configurator extension rules to invoke business logic that falls outside the scope of standard rules. Search decision rules can be used to capture logic needed to solve or finish the configuration.

Design a Customized User Experience

    Build a Better User Experience

  • Use a WYSIWYG user interface editor to build a user experience which guides customers to valid configurations. Use display condition rules to dynamically control the content in the user interface (for example, hide or show invalid options, under what conditions).
  • Choose User Interface Controls and Layout

  • Choose from a variety of selection controls such as radio button groups, images, checkboxes, and choice lists in the user interface. Also choose more complex tabular controls to manage multi-item and multi-instance selections, and commonly used layout and navigation options such as single page, step-by-step, and dynamic tree.
  • Rapidly Design and Deploy the User Interface

  • Choose from the predefined user interface templates to quickly create the dynamic runtime user interface that best meets your needs. Alternatively, leverage the single-page user interface that is provided by default.

Manage the Configurator Model Lifecycle

    Utilize Existing Items and Structures

  • Identify items, structure components, and item class information defined in Oracle Product Management Cloud to use as the basis of your configuration model. Simple to complex (nested) models are supported, as well as transactional item attributes (in which values are determined through a configuration session).
  • Simulate Model Behavior Prior to Release

  • Design, build, and test business logic, model behavior, and overall user experience prior to release.
  • Manage Configurator Model Changes

  • Incrementally release delta changes into production, leveraging comprehensive impact analysis and validation checks to ensure quality.
