Is it possible to combine multiple unique Inventory PN into a single common PN?
Here is an example:
- We order 3 different sizes of mesh (according to how the vendor sells them), each with 3 unique part numbers
- Unit cost per common UofM is the same
The BOMs draw down the mesh according to the type used.
The problem, is the mesh is somewhat interchangeable, and it is impossible to know exactly which type production will use for the product on any given day (don't ask).
Knowing this, is there a way to order these products as they are, but somehow pool them into one common part number (which the BOM's would use) after they are received?
Another added issue is the units of measure would be different after consolidation. They are ordered per ROLL of mesh, and we would probably want to pool them as METERS SQUARED.
I hope this makes sense.
