Raw Material Generator - Issue Purchasing List & Tracking revisions

Raw Material Generator - Issue Purchasing List & Tracking revisions

Hi Everyone,

Let me know if someone are able to help me on this, providing some tool or info about database generator or knowledge regarding how is the best way to create a Raw Material Generator to put information on purchasing department, if I have several lists of raw-materials for each category, where source information is coming from drawings, BOM's, etc. The issue is the controling and tracking the changes from drawings/BOM's, keep the Raw material Lists updated equal to the source documentation, and update the all old revision lists. The challenge passes by producing a table database where is very complex, in order to track/replace/updating information constantly from designers. Before put the raw material lists on purchasing I have to know what material is available on stock and/or what is the best length to buy to fit on partial items to be worked out.

It sounds like you may be talking about an ERP system.  We use SAP, though I'm loathed to recomend it.  You may also be talking about a PLM system.

Google these 2 terms and see if it helps.
