Hi Luigi,

Yes you could use BPCS Container Control to track individual items by Serial
Number but the downside is you will have a large number of ITH records and
each unit will have its own YCI record. You also have to ensure that at
every stage through the process (production reporting, transfers,
adjustments, picking etc.) you are capturing the Serial Number otherwise you
cannot post the transaction.

How you would do it depends on the operational processes involved. Is it
practical to expect shop floor operatives to scan each Serial Number or
would it be simpler to scan a Pallet Number and let the bar-code system do
the rest? If your bar-coding system knows which Serial Numbers are on which
Pallet then transactions can be posted to BPCS by Serial Number (Container
Number in BPCS) even though the operator is scanning a Pallet Number.

An alternative would be to let your bar-coding application track Serial
Numbers/Pallets and still post to BPCS at Item/Lot level keeping things
simple in BPCS.

We have solutions in place covering all these scenarios and more.

Best regards

Subject: Re: [BPCS-L] Bpcs Container & Serial NUmber

Hi

I have a project where they want to trace each single product with its
serial
number so the need is to trace something lower than the lot nbr.
I thought to the container nbr and to an integration with bar-codes systems
and
other satellite systems, but the question is:
-Could the BPCS container be used as serial number for each specific single
item
??

Thanks a lot
