Variant Configuration ROH - different sizes sheet metal

Hi guys,

I have here a factory that buys same thickness sheet metal in different sizes, in the BOMs the metal used is just identified by it's thickness and that's ok because they use a nesting process to minimize the wasted material.

They just want to keep track of the different sizes they buy to make more accurate forecasts for the next purchase orders.

Any chance i can make the ROH material (ie. the code that only tells me the thickness) configuable, so that i can keep track of the different sizes?

For example: if I buy 1 sheet which is 2000 x 1000 x 5 and weights 500kg I'd like to be able to stock it as just 500kg of 5mm thick steel, but keep track of the fact that it was bought as a 2000 x 1000 sheet

VC or just a "code change" when the goods are loaded in the warehouse (309 movement)?

Thank you guys
