Hi @ all,
I’m more or less a newbie when it comes to PIMCore. Nevertheless we plan/think about to build a new PIM-System based on PIMCore. Therefore we are currently playing around with the solution. Now I have a basic question about data modelling in PIMCore. Based on my current knowledge there are 4 possibilities to structure data within PIMCore. You can build/define:
- object bricks
- Field collections
- Classification stores
Now honestly speaking I’m not sure about the pros/cons of the individual methods and what are their intended use cases.
The issue is that in our use-case we have to handle thousands of different product categories with different parameters and parameter-sets. We work in the tool and machine industry and have to handle therewith highly technical product data with tons of relationships and dependencies. Now the question we are currently struggling with is: What is the best method to structure the technical parameters of our products? Our current point of view is to use either the classification store or field collections as it makes no sense to create thousands of object-bricks and different classes.
Does somebody have an advice or an idea what would be a good approach?
Thank you in advance
