redspark hardware question

I released an assembly drawing with a parts list containing about 100 pieces of hardware to the production dept.
The part numbers for instance are ansi b18.2.2 6-32 hex nut...The problem is my company assigns there own part numbers for hardware which means they want me to go into our company data base and change all the part numbers.
I put the entire production dept in a tail spin when they saw the ansi part numbers, which most people here never heard of.
I say this is a little rediculous since ansi is an industry standard and our part numbers are unique to our company only.Additionally all the automation from inventor is out the window if I have to sit here and search for the equivalent to the ansi number and change eack line item.

I guess my question is how does everyone else out there handle parts list with ansi hardware part numbers that are automatic in inventor?

4 minutes Sean. You're slipping ;-)

I use iParts for that and many other reasons. For example, ansi b18.2.2
6-32 hex nut could be Grade 2, Grade 8, 18-8 Stainless etc. Each has to
have a unique part number.

We assign our own part numbers to fasteners and
such.

We even assign seperate part numbers for the same
"ansi" parts between different departments.

As far as the parts list goes, we just enter the
part numbers manually, overriding what ever IV places there.  It's a little
easier (but a little more time consuming) than fighting with the manufacturing
department over taking out part numbers for all the screw sizes to put into an
iPart.

Follow the links others have suggested and ask a lot of questions here.

On the one hand, making iParts is not that hard. On the other hand,
there are a lot of little tricks that can make using the iParts easier
down the road. Do your research because changing the iParts later is a
nuisance.
