This paper aims at combining variable ordering structures with set relations in set optimization, which have been dened using the constant ordering cone before. Since the purpose is to connect these two important approaches in set optimization, we do not restrict our considerations to one certain relation. Conversely, we provide the reader with many new variable set relations generalizing the relations from [16, 25] and discuss their usefulness. After analyzing the properties of the introduced relations, we dene new solution notions for set-valued optimization problems equipped with variable ordering structures and compare them with other concepts from the literature. In order to characterize the introduced solutions a nonlinear scalarization approach is used.
