at the moment when creating associeted product it create random name like blue_652
in some applications and import export situation when using the sku you don't know to whom it belongs (in some magento form)
it will be nice to have automated SKU created in this format
(parent sku)+ (variation 1)+ (variation 2)
(parent sku)+ (Color)+ (Size)
so for shoes color blue size 8 it will be:
SKU-Blue-8 and so forth

Thanks for comment.
We are going to implement such feature in future releases of Store Manager for Magento (Quarter 4 - 2013 or Quarter 1 - 2014).
