In the Getting Started/Definitions document under the "Content Type' section is:

Note: it would be possible to create a product part with three properties that would be roughly equivalent to this set of fields. This would have the advantage of making it possible to transform any content type into a product. Each approach is a valid choice and Orchard allows for both.

I would find it helpful to have a more thorough definition of 'product part'. Is the idea that a content type 'Product Part' is created and, taken together they constitute a 'Product'?

 

thx

A content type is composed of content parts. What constitutes a product is your choice: you could limit that to a product content type (that has the product part) or you could consider any type that has the product part as a product.
