Setting up my part numbering system ... finally. I have settled on a meaningless, sequentially incremented numbering system where the next part takes the next available number in the list. My question has to do with configurations. What do you all do about configurations?
I can see two options:
- Each configuration gets it's own part number.
- The part gets a base part number and the configuration is used as a suffix.
Both have it's advantages and disadvantages.
What is best practice?
