Topic: BOM part substitution
As far as I can tell, the FA manufacturing module does not support part substitution, meaning that a common manufactured item is built in more than one way, using different parts.
So I am thinking of changing the code. The BOM editor would need to support entry of a manufactured item with multiple BOMs. Work order creation would need to select the manufactured item to be built as well as the BOM to be used.
This would require database changes, adding a BOM identifier to the bom and workorders tables to identify distinct BOMs.
Does this make sense or would someone suggest a different approach?
