How can the Variant Manager incorporate with the regular Part BOM?

Hi community,

I currently play around with the variant manager community project ( But I still have some trouble to understand how it´s intended to incorporate with my existing Innovator environment, especially with Aras PE Part and Change Management.

My goal is that end users can build Part BOMs faster. We have products that are highly configurable, but most of the time just a small part of the product differs from the rest. 

Can I use the variant manager for this task? Is it possible to use the variant manger to create new Parts with variant based BOM structures automatically?

Hope somebody can give me some insights. Thanks already!
