Traceablity of 3rd party components

Hi, today we need to ship 3rd party components from the vendors to our site before delivering them to our customer due to traceability matters with our final products.

Is there any solution how to link these serial numbers together if our vendor would make the shipment straight to the end customer? Could we use ex. vendor's Certificate of Approvals if it would be received together with the delivery confirmation and read them depository? Finally we would be able to link these serial numbers together in line with customer order confirmation, delivery confirmation or at installation base.

  • What do you need from your vendor? I mean what is the reason they would ship it to you? Serial numbers?? I would simply do a goods receipt even though they weren't physically at your plant - then a goods issue. If you needed documentation you could have them send it to you.

    If you are re-labeling it when you get it to your location that could be a problem. But for that you could set up an external number range and get the serial number from the vendor.

    Hello Karl,

    You should set up the standard third-party process with statistical goods receipt. Have a look to this link:
