We are trying to setup a way for qualified manufacturer per assembly per part. Is there an advance or 3rd party module that is able to accomplish this? Or even with BPMs that someone has tried and achieved. It seems like there should be an easy way to do this. However, I have not been able to find this in Epicor, at least with our modules.
Here is a scenario to explain it better:
Customer Dalton wants assy 520144 that includes part #102 in the BOM. Part #102 has 3 qualified manufacturers Samsung, Panasonic & TI.
Customer Dalton only wants the product made with Samsung & TI manufacturers.
Customer Acme wants assy # 226145 which also includes part#102, but they only want product with Panasonic & TI.
The question is how to tie part#102 in engineering workbench to use the appropriate manufacturer in each of those assemblies.
I have seen suggestions for different internal part numbers for each manufacturer to be used as alternate parts on the BOM. Which does not work correctly for purchasing and pick-list.
