What is the best practice on how to sort through all of the different weights, sizes, FOB, etc we get for the same product with the software?

Generally speaking because you are contacting suppliers in relation to the same or similar product offerings, the dimensions and weights should not be too different. The FOB may be different however, in this instance I would use the median price while I start to work on the next stages, once you get to the sample stage you will then know which supplier (and therefore which FOB & dimensions for that matter) you are going to work with. Then you can edit / adjust what you have in the software. You can also test out each FOB to make sure that it is profitable enough to satisfy the requirements before going any further. Simply insert the first set of variables and test, then insert the next - you may find that 1 or more of your supplier quotes do not "fit"
