I assume you're referencing structural steel and other materials?
Engineering drawings and associated material/parts list often have "Alternate Items" for each material or component.
For structural shapes the end item design can be dimensionally specified exclusively to the critical or relevant surfaces. Then, each structural member "Alternate Item" is a similar structural shape pre-specified by the design engineering activity. If an item is identified as bubble # 12, the parts list could show multiple items and materials that are acceptable as item #12.
This is the way to have one engineering drawing that can be distributed to multiple locations. The engineering drawing could also have notes clearly indicating that items can be procured depending on availability.
Multiple engineering drawing sets are also possible however managing a parts and material list is often more practical.
