I’ve seen incoming BOMs use a little bit of a longer description or standard notation to help clarify. It’d be a manual effort, but it would help clarify exactly what is needed. For example:
Instead of RES 10M OHM 1/4W 1% AXIAL, it could be noted as RES 10MEG OHM 1/4W 1% AXIAL or RES 0.010 OHM 1/4W 1% AXIAL.
Speaking of upper case woes… Another place I’ve seen this cause some havoc is when noting if something is in bit (lower case letter b) vs. byte (upper case letter B). Just something to keep in mind.
From wikipedia article (https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byte):
The symbol for “byte” is “B”. Sometimes a lowercase “b” is used, but this use is incorrect because “b” is actually the IEEE symbol for “bit”. The IEC symbol for bit is bit. For example, “MB” means “megabyte” and “Mbit” means “megabit”. The difference is important because 1 megabyte (MB) is 1,000,000 bytes, and 1 megabit (Mbit) is 1,000,000 bits or 125,000 bytes. It’s easy to confuse the two, but bits are much smaller than bytes, so the symbol “bit” should be used when referring to “bits” and an uppercase “B” when referring to “bytes”.
