James,

In my opinion, variant configuration should cater to your requirement. As this will help you in saving effort for maintaining multiple material master and training users for the same.

There are lot of information available in for Variant Configuration.

Lense type + Vision + Index + Size + color + Sphere + Cylnder  makes a Material code

PLS            + SV      + 1.3     + 55    + white +  8.25    +  5.50

Variant Configuration(VC) would suit your requirement. B'coz different permutation and combination of material characteristic would be combine together to go into one product which will be sold to the customer.

Further based on the chosen combination characteristics, VC provides a flexibilty of pricing.

If you don't have prior experience on VC, then you might to learn them. And one of the way to learn is refer SAP help & Building Block for the other industry on VC (as you might not get SAP Building Block to refer base line configuration for your industry).


Refer following link for your reference/understanding.
