Hello everyone, i'm new here and hoping to get an answer even though im not sure it is the right place to ask:
We have several products that are almost the same. Say we have a three machines, and the differences between them are 3-4 small parts at different assembly levels. Or maybe we use all the same parts but we place them at different positions. The purchesing dept. at my company is mad for me to open new product number for each machine because to them it looks exactly the same. Did any of you have this problem? What did you do? Any suggestion will help.
