Within a PIM you are maintaining product information per product type. One application should be able to handle a product range: handle marketing products, handle food products, handle electronics, handle jewellery. For each product type/ product range you have different fields. Today you need to set the visibility based on the assigned classification. But some products are assigned to multiple classifications and then it becomes tricky in terms of displaying fields. We are at multiple customers who have a serious complex setup in terms of fieldgroups/ classifications and its not flexible enough so constantly demanding work-arounds. This is especially the case when a product hierarchy (main/sub products) is introduced.
Ideally we have the ability to set product templates which could be linked to a classification. This would allow much more flexibility, transparency and ease of use.
