This course introduces the principles that are used to define Part Numbering Systems in engineering departments and presents four systems commonly used in the industry. Each of the four systems is demonstrated through examples, considerations about supporting documents and with a list of advantages and disadvantages. Additionally, the course discusses supporting best practices and processes (component description, Part Numbering Logs and PDM Vaults) which are essential for achieving the most effective and productive work environment.

A few recommendations are made for situations in which two established Part Numbering Systems need to be integrated, such as in the case of merging Engineering Departments. This course is useful for engineers that are already very familiar with product design but would like to acquire organizational skills related to the management of the Engineering Department.
