We have been using BPCS / LX container control without lot control since
2002. In our environment, a container number is used to represent a full
or partial pallet of the same item. It allows us to trace the pallet
through all inventory locations and transactions and works quite well with
standard LX functionality. This is easily integrated into our Orbesoft
barcode system but the assigning of container numbers has nothing to do
with the barcode software. The barcode software makes it easy for the
users to do LX transactions on fixed and mobile scanning units. So to
answer your question from my experience, yes BPCS container control could
be used as a serial number for each specific item.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me.

I have a project where they want to trace each single product with its
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
