Long Serial Numbers

Summary of Requirement

ACME Co. has some items with Manufacturer’s Serial Numbers (or Lot Numbers) up to 40- characters in length. These Ser/Lot Numbers need to be printed in Sales Transaction Entry.

When the long Ser/Lot items are received in purchasing, ACME needs to be able to record the incoming Ser/Lot provided from the vendor. One item, Smart Boards, have a long serial number comprised of two separate serial numbers. These need to be recorded individually, associated with the SmartBoard (i.e. the Smart Boards need to have two long serial numbers).

In the rest of this document, the long serial/lot numbers/multi-part serial numbers will be referred to as Long Keys.

There are other serial/lot controlled items in the ACME inventory which do not also have Long Keys.

ACME needs to be able to identify which items require Long Keys, and additionally, which of these Long Key items also have the “multi-part” serial numbers.

The Long Keys should print on sales documents.

Also, they need to be able to locate, or cross-reference, the Long Keys to the GP serial/lot numbers and vice versa.
