English is not my native language and I'm trying formulate the following statement as simple and as mathematical as I can:
A code is composed of a family name followed by n option(s):
I have n+1 in mind but I'm sure I can use it in there.
Could it be formulated or illustrated any better?
The choice of family is independent of the choice of options..
The family name could be anything really, "abc", "a100", etc..
An option is a facet or characteristic of a product..
An option could be anything: "-Z", "01", "HH"..
Random-on-the-fly possible codes:
I am trying to document the composition of product codes in a system.
I'm questioning my usage of n in the above statement.
