Yes.  Having worked for a small and large vegetable seed company for 10 years, 
there are many points where a generic manufacturing package would not meet 
their needs.

Generally I would think not, unless there are a lot of assets to track.  In 
most cases an accountant would journal these costs into the general ledger.  
However if there were a large quantity of assets to track I would recommend 
a "Fixed Asset" package / module.  In the LSMB's current state I would 
recommend creation of the fixed asset module at a later point - if the need 
was there.
