Alternate Parts List

I'm not sure quite how to phrase this:

 

I have different configurations of a machine that use mostly the same parts with a few exceptions.  I know how to include the different configs in my BOM but my manufacturing guys don't like having to search through the multiple columns to figure out which parts are different.  Is there a way to make a BOM that will hide any common parts between the models?  For example: In the table below I would want item #1 to be hidden (same qty for both configs) and item two to be shown (different qty for each config)

 

 

ITEM NO.PART NO.DESCRIPTIONCONFIG 1/ QTY.CONFIG 2/QTY.

1

123456EXAMPLE PART 111
2654321EXAMPLE PART 202
