How to create a configurable product in Magento 2
A configurable product looks like a single product with different drop-down lists of options for each variation. Each option is actually a separate simple product with a particular SKU, which makes it possible to track inventory for each product variation. You could achieve a related effect by using a simple product with custom options but without understanding to track inventory for each variation.
As we have already specified configurable product is just a combination of simple products. Correspondingly, to create a configurable product you have to fill out all the same fields as in the simple product creation, plus the Configurations section you left blank in a simple product.
