I'm looking to aquire a database for product development for our web application design. Here is the need in details.
We work with users in many industries, from construction materials, autoparts, toys, furniture, etc... Our online platform organizes projects related to the products users create, basically organizes their product development stages.
The current situation is, every time a user creates a new product into our Database, they have to create the product from scratch, meaning having to add their own specs one by one, data label and entry data. This has the following implications:
- Time [url removed, login to view] get lazy to enter data (then they just copy and paste from word or their webpage the entire specs into a HTML editable field)
- Lack of structure. Users many times don't have an idea of what specs are proper for their products, therefore many products have empty specs.
- No standarization. Is difficutl to standarize specs per category or keyword since there are so many ways customers decribe them.
e.g. Three different users creating a new product in our platform, let's say a chair. Eventhough the users are creating a chair, a specification related to the material(s) the chair is made of, can be called/perceived differently from one user to the other. User one enters a specification called "Material Type:" and it's data, user two enters a spec called "Composition:", user 3 a spec called " Material(s):". The problem with this is that for a simple label name could be several ways to call it but the data entry may be quite similar in the three.
What is the solution we're looking for?
We need to find a standard product database that allow us to propose an initial template for the specs for a specific category and keywords related to a product. This will allow us to:
- Standarize as maximum the structure in the DB.
- Capable to perform some data mining.
- Minimize users' time spent desgining products.
- Maximizing the use of the DB with relevant information.
Hopefully you already have something that we can use... thanks!
