|Hi, does minimrp support drawings (pdf) or other docs as a drawing archive as well or is it solely for part numbers/boms?|
If it support drawings as well, is it possible to have multiple parts (typically similar variants of one part) referring to one single drawing?
Thanks - Niels

|Go to "All Components" in the menu bar on the left of the program window.|
Double click an item. This opens the 'detail' window for that item. Across the middle of the window is a row of Tabs. One of them is "Links".
In the Link tab you can create links to external documents, PDFs, Docs, drawing and even remote webpages such as a manufacturer/supplier's product specification sheet.
When you then go back to the "All Components" list you'll see a new column with a clickable icon. Click that to bring up the linked document.
In the BOM window you can also get that clickable column

|I map a drive few drives on my PC one for drawings one for datasheets, my drawing number is the same as the database number plus the revision, I also save the datasheets with the database number.|
Then when I need to copy the data to my laptop is any easy job and the links all still work.

|Hi, and sorry for the late reply. Thanks for the support and suggestion. However as I understood it theres no functionality in the software which support making revisions and keeping track of which is the newest and approved revision of a drawing. Manufacturing drawings will need to be handled fully manually by making links to a drawing file somewhere on the harddrive. Is that correct? Thanks - Niels |

I had this written for me in a high end MRP system (£50k) I could create an order and it would attach a Data pack of all the latest drawings required at the correct revision, very nice but beyond MiniMrp I think.

|Hello Steve. Yes. Such engineering/revision/drawing control is beyond the scope of a 'Mini' MRP.|
