Set the "Visibility" to "Not Visible Individually" so that obviously this will not be visible in the frontend and if you are intending to only have configurable products in your store.

Don't forget to fill in the "Qty" and "Stock Availability" in the "Inventory" tab

and assign it to a specific category.

Then after filling all those fields, hit the "Save/Save and Continue" button


Step 2 - Create a configurable product.

Just follow the same process on Step 1.
But this time you have to do the following :
1. Set "Product Type" as "Configurable Product"
2. Select configurable attributes
3. And associate the simple product(s) you want to be associated to this configurable product.

And never forget to hit the "Save/Save and Continue" button! When you go to the frontend you will see now the configurable product you have just created. Isn't that simple?

That's all folks!
