In this example, we had a customer who sells rolls of paper in various sizes – small, medium, large, etc. Because of the nature of the product, the small size is simply cut from the medium size, the large from the extra large, etc.
So this workflow allows you to keep those inventory levels in sync automatically. In this case, each size is 2X the size of the smaller size just below it. So any time a size is ordered that has zero inventory, it simply cuts up the available inventory of the parent into 2.
