The Projects tab is applied to access the 2 sub tabs where contract and project rules can be specified for substitution and for mapping the project WBS to the hardware structure.


The Project Substitutes tab is used to identify all alternate parts (substitutes) that can be applied where shortages exist for the selected component/material part on orders related to a specific customer contract or project. It is thus possible to allow either none, or only some of the alternate parts defined via the Substitutes tab for a specific contract or project. (i.e. only those that would be acceptable to the customer).

Items that can normally, from a form, fit and function perspective act as a substitute, may not be acceptable for certain contracts due to its surface treatment, marking or other factors.

Also see Substitutes.


The Project WBS Nodes tab is used to map the work breakdown structure (WBS) of a Project into the hardware breakdown structure of the Bill of material.

This enables MRP to suggested the correct WBS-element when stock replenishment orders are suggested and correctly identifies the element in the WBS of which the budget is to be consumed when manufacturing or purchasing a specific item in the BOM.
