there is a module for 7.0 in the community modules handling serial numbers, we have not tested it yet. But also for us the missing serial number functionality is a major blocker for us to implement OpenERP. Especially as OPenERP claims serial number features but delivers Lot numbers which is a major difference.

Dot know I'm allowed to post links yet, but the link to the module is: https://www.openerp.com/apps/7.0/product_serial/

Did you ever test this and find out if it solves this issue?

Exploring OpenERP for business

openERP v7 out of the box is not setup to force UNIQUE identifying numbers for items in stock. At the time of receipt you can have the system assign a new pack number to incoming products, but users can change the pack number later, either to a new pack number or an existing pack number. I am going through the modules and crafting my own custom module that removes that ability.

I really want to implement this aspect also because it is vital to my business.

Being able to assign a unique sequence number to a piece of inventory would be great.

Hi @patently, we also really need this - will you be releasing your work? Thanks!

I am working on something, but to get the whole system updated is a major task, not close to done yet.

Ditto. We're in a situation where we need to track what firmware is installed in each customer's equipment. I imagine there's a component for tracking equipment maintenance within one's organization. Maybe that can be turned inside out and integrated with customer service.

This is a common requirement for manufacturing companies, especially those with regulatory requirements for traceability - and is something that seems to be a common request on these boards. I am forward to seeing what can be done.
