Can we capture two types of Serial Numbers for a material?

Hi,

I have scenario where i need to capture two different types of serial numbers for a material. This scenario is very similar to the below one -

Say if a CAR is a serialized material, then i want to capture engine no. and chasis no. for each car.

I know in standard serial number management, we can capture one kind of serial no. for an item, but can we capture two types of serial number for an item? If yes, how we can do that?

Please help.

Thanks,

Parimal.

    Hi Parimal,

    Here the Engine number and chassis number is different parts of CAR,

    CAR can be created as Equipment and for that you can create the Separate serial number.

    As the engine number and chassis number are created as separate material and you can create the separate serial number for each part.

    Hi,

    Serial number is a unique identification of an equipment ( car in your case ). Hence, in my opinion 2 serial numbers are not possible.

    You can try using class / characteristics for attaching the engine number and chassis number.

      Hi,

      No it is not possible to have two serial numbers for a material.

      The main attribute of a serial number is that it is UNIQUE.

      You can better have the vehicle number as the required serial number and the other numbers under the Manufacturer data of the General data tab of the IQ01 transaction. ( Equipment master creation ).

      You can better change the name of the manufacturer data such as Model number to Engine numeber and Manu serial no to Chasis no etc.., using CMOD transactions.

      Regards
