Both lots and serial numbers refer to the manufacture date of each product, as well as where it was made and by whom. If any quality issues arise, the serial number code or lots are used to find the root cause of the problem and, if necessary, to help prevent the sale of such products.
Industry in general, along with electronics (televisions, refrigerators, computers, etc.) are examples of sectors producing products with serial numbers.
On the other hand, bakeries, pharmaceuticals, along with shoe manufacturers are representative cases of products in lots.
Advantages of serial numbers or lots production
- It is valid for producing large quantities of the same product: this is the case for companies that produce the same product in large quantities. Since the process is always the same and does not vary, it is easier to take advantage of the experience generated by the repetition of this process.
- Low cost of training and specialization: since the way of operating does not require changes, there is no need for specific training for employees.
