Inconsistent Part Numbers and Descriptions Cause Part Shortages, and Delays in Repairs

Inconsistent Part Numbers and Descriptions Cause Part Shortages, and Delays in Repairs. How do you change this outcome?

For one, be consistent on establishing part numbers, whether the computer generates the part number or you are generating a smart part numbering system. Secondly, establish a part number description sequence. The recommended sequence is:

Noun, Attribute, Specification, and further specifications or descriptions.

Consistency in establishing part numbers and descriptions will go a long ways to avoid duplicate part numbers and avoid excess inventories.
