A lot number is a combination of an alphanumeric prefix and a numeric suffix. When we define an item, we can specify the starting lot prefix and the starting lot number. Oracle Inventory uses this information to generate defaults during transaction entry.

1. Establish lot control for an item.

We can establish lot control for an item when We define it. We can choose from No control or Full control. If We choose lot control We must assign lot numbers when We receive the item into inventory. Thereafter, when We transact this item, We must provide a lot number We specified when We received the item.We can update lot control options for an item if it has zero on-hand quantity.
2 . Establish lot number uniqueness.

We use the Organization Parameters window to specify whether lot numbers should be unique for an item. If We do not establish lot number uniqueness, We can assign the same lot number to multiple items in the same organization and across organizations.

If We control lot number uniqueness at the Master level, We can assign a specific lot number only to one item in the same organization and across organizations. When We perform transactions, Oracle Inventory checks the lot number uniqueness control to generate lot number defaults.

3. Optionally, determine whether to automatically generate lot number defaults.

We use the Organization Parameters window to specify how to generate lot number defaults. We can choose to generate sequential lot numbers based on an alphanumeric prefix We specify when We define an item. Oracle Inventory can also generate lot number defaults for the entire organization. In this case, We must define a lot number prefix at the Organization level in the Organization Parameters window.
