Intelligent Part numbering

Good Afternoon, 

 

 

I am hoping someone can help. 

 

I wish to create part numbers in Teamcenter with the following format:

 

<prefix> <TopLevel> - <subLevel>

 

prefix = 2 alpha characters e.g. AA

TopLeve = 4 digit numerical e.g 1234

subLevel = 3 digit numerical e.g 001

 

Example: AA1234-001

 

 

Ideally, The prefix and Toplevel need to be selected from seperate LOVs. Then the subLevel genereated using a counter.

 

I have attempted to configure this using ID Generation Rules. However it does not appear possible to have unique counters for each combination of prefix & TopLevel

 

Can anyone suggest how I could achieve this?

 

Thanks in advance.

Depending on the version of Teamcenter you're using, it sounds like multifield keys would be the answer.
