Firstly, your schematic might be fine for generating a netlist, but is not really human friendly. I should be able to quickly look at a schematic and have a fair understanding of how it works - with yours i don't. There's a bit of circuit here, another bit there and so on. What I observe with your pcb is large current loops. Do a printout of the pcb and get ...

You could argue that for generics like most resistors and caps, dedicated MPNs and supply chain management is not an issue. As long as your BOM template includes the Value or Comment fields (whichever you end up using to ...
