Content Organization in Collections

So I’m building a site for a custom manufacture. So they have a list of products that they make with a bunch of different options that the customer can choose from. I am wondering what is the best way I can set the information up in the collections. My big problem is that the different options modify the price of the product.

Kind of what I’m dealing with:
Product 1
- 1st Core Choice (This determines the base price of the product)
- Layup 1
- Layup 2
- Layup 3
- Layup 4
- Layup 5
- Layup 6
- Layup 7
- 2nd Core Choice
- Standard (doesn’t change price)
- Light (Adds a set dollar amount to price, can change from product to product.)
- 3rd Core Choice (Adds a set dollar amount to price, can change from product to product.)
- 2nd Layup 1
- 2nd Layup 2
- 2nd Layup 3
- 2nd Layup 4
- 2nd Layup 5
- 2nd Layup 6
- 2nd Layup 7
After choosing from the 3 core options, then there is a list of other options that will modify the prices as well.
Reinforcement upgrades (each choice will add a set dollar amount)
- Option 1
- Option 2
- Option 3
package upgrades (each choice will add a set dollar amount)
- Option 1
- Option 2
- Option 3
Material upgrade (Adds to price if chosen)
And then last, we have a bunch of outfitting options that can be added on as well that will modify the price.

Repeat this about 20 more times and there is the “fun” I’m am looking at.

The site is more of an online catalogue than anything else. Due to the nature and price of the products, the manufacture wants to talk to the customer before they order anything. So no ecommerce needed. But I would like to possibly be able to allow for the customer to fill out a form, that has drop down list of all the options and will show them the total price has they add and take away the different choices and options that are offered. then I want them the option to email the manufacture the filled out form.

Last thing I should mention. The products each have their own page.

In short:

  1. What is the best way for me to organize the information in the collections?
  2. How do I attach prices to those choices and options?
  3. Each of products have a different base price, then you can mix and match the different core choices, which will modify the price, and then you can add optional upgrades as well as outfitting options on top of that, which all modify the price.

Thanks,
