One of our devices has sequential serials numbers, where each device has its own 5 digit serial number. For example, the first device built would be ‘00001’ and the second would be ‘00002’.
When I issue serial numbers under the work order, it doesn’t look like I can set the starting serial number. Is there a way for Cetec to take into account the last serial number that was issued for this part number and set the starting serial number accordingly? Or is there a way for me to enter the starting serial number and Cetec fill in the remaining serials?
In parentheses after SERIAL_NUM_1, you can set how many digits you would like for the serial to use. You can set this as the default serial, or, you can do this on specific part records under the Edit tab, and then scrolling down to Production Information.
Once you do this for the first time, Cetec will automatically create a new config setting called output_num_1, which seems to already be in your environment, and from here you can set the number for which the serials will start next:
By setting the sequence, I meant I would like to tell Cetec which serial number to start on.
I tried the ‘serial_num_1(6)’ and it is incrementing by one digit and has a total of six digits. However, it starts with ‘2’ and I want it to start with 0. Our lot codes start with ‘2’, but it doesn’t look like that would impact this serial sequence. Do you have any tips?
Additionally, will the config setting be created once I close the work order?
