Project coding mask with a special identification method


Hi Experts,

We are in a ship manufacturing industry.The issues is to create a coding mask in the way as follows:
N /1311010001 is project definition Id. And its subsequent WBS will be like N /1311010001-2345 , N /1311010001-3423 ,N /1311010001-.... and so on

In this 13 is the year,11 is month,01 is vessel type and 0001 is the sequence number of incoming vessel.
This sequence number needs to be generated automatically but sequentially for every next vessel coming inside the plant and so on.

Also, for a vessel coming in february,next year then the coding mask must allow to create project id as N /1402010002 and so on.

Where last four characters 0002 is the next sequence number.

The purpose of this modification is for informatory purpose only. I am not sure if it is possible...

Kindly suggest me the possibility,if any, to map this in the system..

Thanks & Regards
