Topic:   Serial Numbers

Hi,

As part of our stocks, we have instruments with unique serial numbers. Would miniMRP be able to identify the individual instrument within a total stock number of several hundred?

Thanks

This is something we're looking at for our next V5 later this year. I can't promise that it will be included though. Features are based on demand from users.

It would be quite simple to add serial numbers to inventory items - where each component and/or assembly - can have a unique serial number. But we'd also need to record the serial number when an item is purchased, consumed in an assembly and then when the assembly is sold. That's actually quite a lot of functionality for a "Mini" MRP program and I fear may affect the price.

Anyone else interested in this feature then please add comment below.

Feedback we're looking for is:-

1. Do we just record record the serial numbers of individual inventory items but not track those serial numbers through consumption/sale.

2. Or, at the other extreme, we track serial numbers from purchase/creation all the way through consumption and final sale. (ie full serial number tracking)

Serial numbers (and/or batch numbers) would be ideal for where traceability is required. Presently, I use an external spreadsheet - not ideal.

Serial numbers are a much needed feature. I have been looking at other software for the near future so I can manage serial numbers.

We have 3 licenses and would absolutely love "end to end" serial number tracking. Some of our items we resell are high value and for us to keep track of when each came in and where each went in one app would be a great help. At a minimum, if there was a better way of tying serial numbers to customer orders than using the comment field, I would love it.

For us, "end to end" serial number tracking falls in the "nice to have" category, but tracking end-item serial numbers to customer orders would help us.

End to End serial Number tracking would be beneficial to us too

I am evaluating this product, and it has almost everything that I need. The only thing that I need that is not implemented is the end to end serial numbers. Do you have plans to add this?

It is something we want to look at but we just haven't had chance to do that.

this is something that we also require, although end to end would be brilliant, in reality with how all bar a couple of our assemblies are produced even if it's just adding an editable box to the customer order per line (important needs to be able to be edited after the customer order is produced as if we have batched a load of assemblies it would then allow us to record the serial number of the unit we are sending) that would be grat as currently we have to run a seperate spread sheet to do this which seems a bit like doing the job twice

i would also go so far as to also say an increase in cost for extra functionality wouldn't be a killer if it means improvements happen faster

maybe it's worth starting a feature voteing board like microsoft does for it's products ?

Great idea. This would meet our needs for "end item" serial number tracking.

This would be a great enhancement. There are 2 aspects of this: Serial number of the built item, and serial numbers of high-value components within that item. In our case the final product at the top of the multi-level BOM has some FRUs that could also have serial numbers. The FRUs may be bought in as components with external serial numbers not generated by us.
One thing to consider with this is that if it becomes a v5 feature it also needs to support retrofitting around what is already there, so we need to be able to update existing inventory records with serial numbers when migrating to v5.

This would be great for us too. We also use an Excel spreadsheet to track serial numbers. These are allocated at the customer order stage.

Upvote too - we use xcel sheet and separate custom database, even end-Sn/Batch would be good.
