PROLAG®World's serial number administration helps you manage your serial numbers effectively. Serial numbers (or DOT numbers in the automotive industry) are entered at storage-in and/or at goods issue.

  • If a serial number is entered at storage-in, this number applies to the relevant goods as long as they are in storage and to all storage transactions.
  • A serial number can also be entered for ths first time at the retrieval stage. Here, it is important to determine whether the delivery order requries a specific serial number or if any serial number can be retrieved to fulfill an order.

A serial number search can take place anywhere in the warehouse.
If a serial number is entered when goods are putaway, it is retained for all subsequent goods movements. A protocol of retrieved serial numbers is written to the history to enable traceability.
