I’ve got machined parts that come as a batch. These parts are then part of a sub-assembly, which in turn becomes part of an assembly.
I have different possible configurations:
- Only the part has a batch number. I just want to know which part is used in the sub-assembly and assembly. These two don’t have batch or serial numbers, but they could be given the same batch number as the part.
- Parts have batch number, the assembly has a serial number. My final assembly, which has a unique serial number, uses parts that have a batch number, as well as sub-assemblies which to not have a batch or serial number, but that use parts that have a batch number. I’d like to track all the batches that have been used, whether directly or through a sub-assembly.
Is there a way to track which batch my part comes from, without having to enter it by hand at each step? It’s confusing and source of error.
I hope this was clear. Thanks for your help!
