3.6 Inventory code numbering system
Inventory codes are numbers that the HTM service uses to label each separate piece of equipment so individual machines can be identified from among many similar items. It is important to be able to do this so that, for example, you could consider the service history (see Guide 5, linked below) of a specific suction pump compared to the performance of all suction pumps in general.

Various types of inventory code numbering systems can be used, and Box 8 (linked below) shows the advantages and disadvantages of the various options. It is possible to make your system as sophisticated (complicated and informative) or as basic (simple but less informative) as you like.
