PDM transition to write a variable based on another?

     Is it possible to write a variable based on the value of another variable as a transition action?  We have a branch in Germany and in the US.  The materials they call out are different than ours, but usually have a substitute US material and vice versa.  so I want to add an "alt material" variable and based on the first material write the value for an alternate material.

 

     I see dispatch might be able to do this, or we could write some custom API possibly?  I just don't know what this would even look like - the transition action would be set to "Execute Command", and then I would point it to a script/exe written in...???

 

Sorry I know this is pretty vague, I'm out of my comfort zone for sure, but I would like to make this work.  Thanks for your help!
