question about MRP and quotes for large projects (hotels, hospitals etc)

Hi All,
I have a question on how to implement quotes for large bids in an MRP environment.

We are a manufacturer of furniture, these are almost all project specific pieces. (hotels, hospitals, museums, commercial places etc).
We can of course do the whole quotation within odoo, figuring out its production costs, create boms for every single item.
But we dont always win a bid (or our clients dont win a bid).

if we DO win, its only 1 press of a button and production/purchase starts automatic, so there is a win win.
but if we/they dont win.. there we are, with a system full of specific products we never going to use again since there are project specific. 

So i would like to know your experience on this, how do you handle these kind of projects? you simply put everything in odoo, or keep things separated and put it in odoo when you close the project, or something else? any ideas?
