You can configure how the lot code can be set, and for LX in API820 you have 
from the Help on your system --> "4": 

0 = Manual                                              
1 = YYMM + 6 digit sequence number (within the month)   
2= YY + 8 digit number (with the year)                  
3 = Julian Date (5) + 5 digit sequence number           
4 = a call to a user created lot numbering program      
5 = CCYYMM + 19 digit sequence number (within the month)
6 = CCYY + 21 digit sequence number (within the year)   
7 = CCYYNNN, Julian Date (7) + 18 digit sequence number 

When a lot is created, selecting lot numbering method 4 calls a user 
written (and installed) program which must be named USR901. 
This program can provide any lot numbering scheme developed by a user which 
operates within the field size available (25,A).                                


So, you have to follow on USR901 the facility needs, you are describing.

Subject: [BPCS-L] Lot Control at Multiple Facilities

Hi everyone,


My name is Paul Hirschmann and I work for a snack food manufacturer. The

company has multiple facilities in the U.S. and Canada and is in the
process of 

implementing BPCS LX. We would like to use Lot Control at all of the 

facilities for stock rotation and recall however, we have a problem. The

product, with the same item number, can be made at different facilities.

on my research, BPCS LX doesn't support this in Lot Control. In other

we need to have a way to distinguish from what facility that item was

in while using the lot control number. Any help would be greatly
