Characteristic HANDLEBAR is assigned to configurable material BIKE. Characteristic HANDLEBAR has the following values:

HANDLEBAR

Racing

 

MOUNTAIN_HANDLEBAR

 

STANDARD_HANDLEBAR

Each handlebar has its own component in the BOM and its own operation in the routing. A selection condition is allocated to each component and each operation. This selection condition determines which components and operations are selected for a variant.
