Defining Product Lines

Product lines are logical groupings of products. When you define a product line, you name it and then specify all the products in that particular line. If you have products that have already been defined, you can associate them with the product line. You can assign product line managers.

This task is a step in Process of Managing Products.

To create a product line

  1. Navigate to the Administration - Product screen > Product Lines view.
  2. In the Product Lines list, create a new record, and complete the necessary fields.

    Some fields are described in the following table.


    Product Line

    The name of the product line to which products belong.

    Product Line Manager

    The name of the product line managers.


    The products associated with the product line. You can add or delete a product from a product line and a product can belong to more than one product line.

    A product must exist before it can be associated with a product line.

NOTE:  When you create a new product on the Products list view, you can add it to an existing product line by specifying a value in the Product Line field of the Product record.
