    Unanswered: Suggestion on database schema

    Hi folks,

    I need some suggestion on how to design the db schema for my project.
    So i need to design inventory system in a fabrication situation.

    So for example,

    1. Item A consist of couple sub-items such as
    a. item a1 with all the attributes such as weight, length, etc.
    b. item a2 with all the attributes as well
    c.
    d. etc...

    I have an idea about using nested table but I am not sure if this is a good solution because it needs to be expandable to thousands of items without burdening the database process.

    Thanks a lot

    To get you going, check out the "Inventory" section.
