I am asking this from a Purchasing (consolidation) viewpoint.

We will design and manufacture some of our own products. More often, we just
manufacture to the design of our OEM's.

Thus, when we create a BOM for the OEM designed product, we want to use all of
their part numbers so that everything will match their drawings, etc.

But, when we create a BOM for one of our OWN designed products, we will use our
own internal part numbers.

The problem is that our Item Master ends up with TWO different part numbers
which POINT TO the very same physical component - which will be entirely
purchased from ONE supplier.

So, we want to be able to consolidate the Purchasing requirements for those two
(or more in cases) part numbers into just ONE NUMBER - which we can then order
from our supplier.

Anyone handle this through the vanilla BPCS? Anyone come up with their own
