I am looking for a maintainable, shareable and scalable process to output a complete part list (as in "Part N°XXX from supplier YYY") From an Eagle project, when it seems to only be able to provides a BOM ("Component type XXX with value YYY").

Is there a way to do that using Eagle alone, or do i have to process the BOM, in excel for example?

If you mean manufacturer instead, then you can put complete P/N into the value field of the components. \$\endgroup\$ – Anonymous Jul 17 '17 at 11:01

You can use attributes. There are also ULP's out there that use an external database.

But to be honest, eagle is the wrong tool for the job. If you are looking for that level of automation and integration, you should use a higher end tool.
