A customer falls in love with a king-size bed that’s all they see—a bed. However, the backend database doesn’t see it that way. It sees individual components that, in their totality, make up a bed: headboard, footboard, side rails, bottom slats, adjustable leg extenders, etc. Each of those individual components has its own Stock Keeping Unit or SKU. Properly mapping these stock-keeping units across different systems is a very common problem in the furniture world.
