Custom Computer Interface

We are making a customization interface for a custom computer company. It

will have the same basic point as [url removed, login to view] / [url removed, login to view] /

[url removed, login to view] and a variety of other like-wise custom computer

companies with online interfaces (Dell even has one)

I have uploaded a demo (something I quickly put together) of the front-end

"customization interface" available here: [url removed, login to view]

[This is the actual interface the user will see - there are 2 control panels

(admin cp and user cp) in addition to this page]. Basically there will be 25

or so catagories (tables - processors, hard drives, graphics cards, monitors

etc) with all the diferent things that go into (or peripherals) the

computer. The user can select parts (most will be radio butons although

some, such as software, will be check boxes) for each of these catagories.

Each time a radio button is selected the details about that product should

update next to it (Name/Brand/Other/Price/Image will be constant throughout

every catagory, while FSB/Socket/Frequency as specific to processors,

Cache/Interface/Capacity specific to hard drives, and so on. Basically each

catagory will have 2-4 specific detail fields and they all share the same 5

global fields (with different values of course).

At the bottom of this 'customiation' page there will be 3 options: "Save

configuration", "Submit Configuration", "Buy configuration now". There will

also be a text area where they can input comments about their computer

(basically the same way Puget has it set it), they can write "I want the

fastest computer you can make", or "I want an excellent gaming computer that

is also relatively quiet", etc.

"Save Configuration" will basically save the configuration in the user cp.

The user CP will be a very simple page, the user can save configurations,

edit saved configurations, buy saved configurations, and view status of any

current orders [if the user just bought a computer it will show details of

their purchase (basically an invoice), and the current status (will explain

this later)]. The user will have to login to access the user cp (and to save

any configurations). To login the user must be registered, so there has to

be a registration form as well.

"Submit Configuration" means the user will submit it (they do not pay) to us

for review. We can then reply with suggestions about their configuration,

they can still edit it (acts as a saved configuration in that sense), and

they can choose to buy it at any time.

"Buy Configuration" is exactly what it says, 'buy it now'. This will bypass

the "submit configuration" where we respond with suggestions. This will

immediatley buy the computer (will take them directly to an order form where

the user inputs personal and payment information - when the user chooses to

'buy' one of their saved or submitted configurations it also brigns them to

this same order form).

So the user cp will be pretty simple, nothing too fancy. The admin CP is

what will drive this entire customization interface. I have an example here:

[url removed, login to view]

Those are all the features that should be listed. in the Admin CP we should

be able to add/edit products. All the catagories/fields we have are listed

in the "add multiple products" link. We should be able to add these items,

and then edit them later (price changes etc), and also delete a product if

we stop offering it. That is all pretty trivial, the 'Custom PC' area would

be a bit more complicated. Basically we want to offer a few different

'default' PCs (If you look on Alienware's site they offer abuot 10 different

default settings, same as Puget, but 90% of the products you can customize

are the same). We want to have 4 basic catagories for our 'Custom PCs'

(Gamer/Office/Media/Silent), each catagory might have more than 1 default PC

as well, maybe a "Budget Gaming PC" and an "Extreme Gaming PC". The whole

point of this is for default parts (you can see this on customization

interfaces for other sites as well, when you select a PC all the default

parts are already selected, but you can change them all). Over 90% of the

parts will be the same, but we do not want to offer a very loud power supply

in our 'silent pc' (this psu may be available in every one of our setups

except this one silent setup), just as we would not want the default

processor for our 'budget gaming pc' to be the most expensive one we have

(although we may want to still ofer that processor). We just want to set up

a base that the user can customize, each 'custom PC' will have its own

defaults, and each will have its own list of parts (although 90%+ will be

the same throughout all the computers). All of this will be set by admins in

the admin CP.

The hardest part (I believe) of this interface will be compatibility. I am

not sure if you know uch about hardware, but not all processors are

compatible with all motherboards (Sockets differ), not all fans are

compatible with all processors, not all graphics cards are compatible with

all motherboards (PCI Express or AGP), and so on. Luckily the only issue is

the MOTHERBOARD. Anything that has a compatibility issue will be with the

motherboard. I can give more details on all this later, but basically it

goes as I said above. The sockets of processors/fans and motherboards must

match, input types of graphics cards must match (PCI Express / AGP), hard

drives must match (SATA or IDE), many motherboards are compatible with both

SATA and IDE, so that needs to be accounted for as well, RAM must match

(buffered / unbuffered), etc etc. when I add products I want to be able to

select which is which (ie: When I add a motherboard I want to select which

types of things it is compatible with (Socket 775 processors, unbuffered

RAM, SATA *AND* IDE Hard Drives (or just SATA, or just IDE), AGP graphics

card) and things of that sor. so when I add a processor or another product I

want to select which motherboard it is compatible with (socket 775), same

with other products. The compatibility 'rules' should be dropdowns

(basically the exact same as it is showed in the "add multiple items" demo I

have linked you to, and the other detail fields

(Name/Brand/FSB/Frequency/Price etc for whatever product it may be) should

be text inputs. I want to set up this compatibility in the admin cp when I

add parts so it will be displayed correctly in the customization interface

(when the user hits a radio button for a motherboard compatible with only a

socket 775 processor, only socket 775 processors are shown.. same with a

socket 939 processor, and so on with all catagories). The compatibility in

the interface should be fully automatic (after we manually add all the

products, and set up the "custom PCs" etc.

I understand you might not understand the "Custom PC" area of the admin cp

(hard to explain) so I can explain it more later, but I have the basic point


The last part of the admin CP is the 'orders' area.

1) We want to see everyone who is registered

2) We want to see all the saved orders on our site (who saved them, any

comments they left, etc)

3) We want to see all 'submitted' orders and be able to make 'comments' on

these orders (emails to the user)

4) See all 'buy now' orders and all the info.

5) We also want a status system where when we get an order it will say

something like "Step 1"(this will be shown in the user CP as well, and

updated in the admin CP). After we processor credit card we can update it to

"Step 2" (This also gets updated i nthe user CP. There will be multiple

'steps' (they will actually be more like "We have recieved your order",

"Your credit card has been processed", "Your computer has been shipped", and

things of that sort), around 7. When we are on the last step ("Your order

has been shipped"), we can then input tracking number (viewable by the

client as well).

This is basically all I can think of, but there are probably a few other

details I might have forgotten to mention. I know this is very long but I

included every possible detail for the best understanding of this project.
