User Friendly Options Interface

We are looking for assistance in creating a user friendly interface for our client to add and assign product options.

We read and followed the Tutorial for "Product Options with eCart". According to the tutorial, we are advised to "add various product options and option groups" before adding product option functionality to eCart. For each of the "options" related tables (productoptions, options and optionsgroup), We proceeded through the Datassist wizard generating insert, update, delete and details pages.

We attempted to use these new pages to insert data but quickly became confounded. After consulting the database diagram, we developed a basic understanding of how it works. Then we used phpmyadmin to enter in some sample data. After completing the tutorial, we managed to associate a product with options, but our client will not want to use phpmyadmin for data entry (for options). So, we are pursuing a more intuitive interface for inserting and associating options.

The following post helpful, but it does not seem to include "optiongroups".

We also are looking for something similar to this (a simple interface somewhat similar to powerstore).
