Attaching non model components to EPDM BOM

Hi all!


The engineering manager came to me today and asked to have a calibration document given a part number so it could be made a part of the BOM of a particular product. Now I thought this odd, because I don't think non solidworks parts could be calculated into the BOM. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I also hesitate because the way our part numbering is set up, only solidworks files trigger part numbering not excel files.

What he wants is a way for this particular file to be associated to a particular version of the BOM as the file keeps track of software changes as a particular product changes.

Does anyone have recommendations on how to associate the file and the BOM versions? Or if it is possible, how to have the file participate in the BOM.


Thank you kindly!
