When customer is making buying decision based on how the product looks and different products in same product line are looking different. 

Sometimes used to have more products in product category instead of making selection or multiproduct.

When to use multiproduct

When product look same in product listing in webshop but price changes with different parameter e.g. bigger sized mat is more expensive although it looks same.

When to use selection

When different sized or colored products have same buying and selling price. Vartiants of selection may have different EAN-number and stock account but produvt number has to be same.

Disadvantages of normal product

Data has to be behind every product which increases maintanance.

Disadvantages of multiproduct

You have to create product for every combination of parameters. e.g. Product have 2 colors and 2 sizes. It means you have to create 2*2=4 different products. If product has 3 lenghts as well you have to create 2*2*3=12 products. 

Disadvantages of selection

All variants of selection has to have same product number, supplier number, selling price and buying price.
