Can You Create a "Shell" Part Number?


In our sales process it seems like there is a lot of idle time that is a result of the creating new material masters, bills of material, getting vendor quotes to create new info records. To speed this along one solution was to use a dummy part number to quote customers while new part numbers were being completed which can take weeks. My question for the expert, is there a way to generate a shell part number to use in place of generic that can eventually be completed? This way data related to that material or bom will not be untracked as with a dummy part number? Perhaps a plug in that may perform this function automatically?
