    Approved Vendor Lists

    Pete Yodis

      Does anyone manage approved vendor lists using EPDM?  I would envision fields on data cards for Approved Source1, Approved Source2, Approved Source3, etc... and then having the ability to query the values in those variables.  We currently have an Access databse where AVL's are done.  I am not much of a fan of having all these separate databases if a smaller number of them could handle more jobs.  I am considering if AVL's could be done in EPDM, how that might happen.

          I see "manufacturer" all the time. --Vendor lists not as often, more typically that type of info is stored in the purchasing system.


          That being said, certainly can be done, I would suggest making these variables versionless, so you don't have to change the revision if your vendors ever change. Maybe group them together on a "Purchasing tab" so you could put other requisition type stuff there.
