Topic:   multiple part numbers

I'm looking at using MiniMRP to manage electronic BOMs. As such I need to be able to specify a component in the BOM and associate various parts from multiple manufacturers and suppliers to it. This seems to work but if you have multiple part numbers from the same manufacturer or supplier I don't see how to do that, since it appears you can only have one entry per supplier or manufacturer associated with a component.

For example, if you have a 1K resistor as component and there are 4 manufacturers for that component where some of those manufacturers have multiple parts with different part numbers. So, if we want to add entries for the manufacturers and then the distributors where we have multiple part numbers from both the manufacturers and distributors I don't see a way of doing that.

I make a couple of assumptions here.

1 . You have a 1K resistor and that has "your" part number.

2. You can buy that resistor from multiple suppliers and each of those has their own supplier part number.

Look at the Item detail window that's the window where you can edit the item's description etc. In there is the supplier's tab. In that supplier's tab you can add any number of additional suppliers and each of those can have their own supplier part number, different prices and different supply UOM.

In that supplier's tab the top one is the 'Default' supplier. This is the supplier that will appear, with that supplier's part number, in BOMs in the Supplier column.

Also in that supplier's tab you can define ONE supplier as the manufacturer. Only ONE. This manufacturer and their part number will also appear in BOMs in the Manufacturer column.

Reading your email it sounds like you you want the BOM to show more alternate suppliers. Sorry. MiniMRP can't do that.
