PC Sales Guide/Configurator
One important goal is to help increase the attach rate of Lenovo options. One Business Partner suggested a Configurator enhancement that would help him do just that. Under Utilities-->Extract Option List, you can enter a full system unit partnumber, select which option family or families you want, pick a price/supply value and click on Build. In less than a second the Configurator will generate a text file, with the complete description of the system unit, and the family/families of options supported on that model. Not just the family, but for that specific model. It even opens the freshly-generated file with Notepad, so you can see it immediately. When options are supported only on some individual models and not the entire family, or only under certain circumstances, that will be reflected in the list it generates.
Scroll down to see the results.
Here is such a list, with the extended description of the system unit, ready to give to the customer. Note there are several items of interest below. First, some Memory option partnumbers have a suffix of a vertical bar, and a number or character. These are similar in purpose to the footnotes in the OCM (Options Compatibility Matrix), and provide additional information (at the bottom) about using these options on this particular system. Note too the inclusion of the second processor option, which would normally be an Extra, not a Memory part. Second processors appear both as an Extra and as a Memory part. It is copied in Memory because it is important to understand that on this model, you cannot add memory modules beyond the half-full point, without adding the second processor. Models with the second processor standard do not show any processor options. Third, the second matching processor (underlined) is an Intel part, complete with the price from the U.S. Business Partner, as the Lenovo partnumber for the second processor has been withdrawn. The final point is that the single Configurator database contains both current and withdrawn models, making it easy & simple to find either type of system, and their options. You can support your install base easily, with a single tool.
