I have seen people ask this same question on this site, and I haven't figured out what the OpenERP solution to this problem is. I would like to get this resolved before I continue developing in OpenERP. I will be developing a solution for an electronics manufacturing company, and here is how they want to do things.
They want to have an internal part number. Let's say it's 321-123456-123. There are several manufacturer parts that can satisfy a requirement for 321-123456-123. They call this the approved manufacturers list. There can be multiple manufacturers part numbers on the approved manufacturer list:
Vishay 123456 Kemet 234567
For each approved manufacturer list, there is an approved vendor list. For the Vishay 123456, I might be able to buy this part at digi-key and avnet.
For each internal part number, there are multiple possible manufacturers. For each manufacturers part, there are multiple possible vendors. Is there a way of implementing this with openerp?
There is a module that allows me to add a single manufacturer part to a product. I have built a simple BOM that looks like this:
Level 1: 321-123456-123 Level 2: Vishay 123456 Kemet 234567
Then I add my supplier information to the vishay and kemet parts. However, if I req 321-123456-123 it will create reqs for both the Vishay and Kemet parts. I found another conversations on alternates. Is there a way to do alternates in OpenERP such that an order for either the Vishay part or the Kemet part would satisfy the requirement for the 321-123456-123?
