RE: How does revision control work in netsuite?
We are working on implementing NetSuite, so we are still learning our way around. Our business has no physical manufacturing, all of the fab work is subbed out. We do the designing/engineering of many of our products though. When we update a product, we want to be able to control the revision in NetSuite to match what’s on the engineering print. What’s the best practice in NetSuite to handle this? An example would be we changed a hole size, or added a hole. So nothing would change BOM wise, we just want to have some idea when something changed on an inventory item. Is this something that exists already? Or would we have to make something custom for that? The only thing that I’ve been able to find so far on revisions is in the advanced BOM module, but these items wouldn’t have a BOM to speak of, so I don’t think that’s the right place to be looking. We don’t really want control as tight as actual LOT tracking, but something that gives us a general idea.
thanks in advance.
You can also use effective/obsolete dates on the components. That method bypasses the need for Advanced BOMs.
