As you have seen from several posts, there are several ways you can go with
this, depending on what works for your BPCS version & what your corporate
staff is comfortable with ... I have found that when people are not
comfortable, you end up with different people solving the same challenge
different ways which invites confusion.

Another "solution" is for the
M123 ITEM # to have
11.123 in DESCRIPTION

Then in all documents that go to your customer, you print the description.
Shipping documents
Acknowlegements
Schedule projections

Cartons & Boxes containing the product
For example, we have stuff from our shop floor
and the actual product is sometimes labeled

Identify all places, that label the items, that go to the customer
make sure that all include description, whether or not item also there

100% show the description
The customer sees what they want to see.

You might consider 100% also show the item
Because your people also see the same paperwork flow.

You keep your system simple.
