Enterprise Item Number” (or “EIN”) is an identifier of an engineering definition, which is recognized by single or multiple organizations.
In the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, users can set such a number from several authoring applications. By doing so, the extension “Enterprise Information” will be added to the correspondent Engineering Item with the Enterprise Item Number:
Administrators can control the definition of the numbering convention used in the EIN, based on their company policies:
- Manual definition
- Automated definition using a business logic (defined by the administrator)
- Automated definition (defined by the administrator) based on a formula that uses values of the Engineering Item attributes, in a specific order.
