Noob here, just loaded 2.3.16 on my server and started tweaking it. It's apparent that this is good for my operation of assembling electronic devices, but it seems that if serial numbering gets off the ground, it would be great if it ties in on the manufacturing side with revision control. As I imagine it, when a work order is entered, let's imagine that the WO is to make 10 items, the revision level of the hardware, and a separate revision number for the firmware, should be attached to the range of 10 serial numbers, and the WO generates those serial numbers and each inventory item at that point has a unique SN.
Then, when the PO is generated, the actual SNs would be tracked to the PO and the customer. Later, we would be able to look up what hardware revision and firmware revision was sent to a particular customer, if there's a question about revision numbers.
Am I dreaming, or is this realistic?
