Is it possible to generate multiple purchase orders from an assembly (that has multiple vendors)? We would like to create purchase orders for all of the parts for an assembly without having to select each vendor individually and search for the parts that apply to the assembly.

Not exactly what you asked for but this will save some of the searching/selecting.
Create a work order to build the assembly.
Put the Work Order into the "Allocated" state.
At the top of the Work Order/BOM window you see the blue wrench button. Click that and select the option to 'Show Shortages'. This brings up a list of items that you need to purchase.
Near the right side of the list is a column of Checkboxes "Order Y/N". Put a checkmark in any you want to buy. Or click the column header to check them all.
This does not actually create any purchase orders but when you do, later, go to the purchasing menu and select a supplier and create an order then the previously selected items will be pre-populated into the purchase order so you don't need to search for them.
