How to manage soft rolls on IBP

My company has recently transitioned to IBP from Excel based material planning. One of the challenges we have in our high tech manufacturing business is how to manage soft rolls of supplied components. IT seems that IBP only has the ability to manage 1 raw material per SKU from a single supplier. As many of our component suppliers roll their products fairly frequently but not substantially enough to force us to change our SKU, it creates an inventory management issue that we essentially manage by trying to consume all the old material before the effective date of the new material at which point IBP only deals with the new material.

Does IBP base capability allow us to actually set up two material numbers from the same supplier for the same SKU on our side? How are folks in other companies managing similar soft rolls?
