I have a pipeline for Leads, then another pipeline that they move to once they become orders in production. It appears in the Leads Pipeline as a project, but when it becomes an order in production, it gets wilder---each item the client purchases for the project has its own moving pieces and so I end up creating a new deal for each item ordered. 

The problem is that I then am without the information generated in the original deal, when we were just working on concepts and ideas. Long way around the horn. 

Is there a way to take a deal and turn it into triplets? Multiple copies of the same deal that can then evolve independent of one another through production?
