I have a customer that the ASN requirements are changing. They manufacture parts that can be boxed 15 to 1000 pieces per box. They manufacture parts with quantities from 1000 to 50,000 at a time and they are boxed, labeled, and placed on a pallet. Some parts are stored until they need shipped and other parts ship immediately.

The new requirements state that each carton serial number that must be included in the 856 ASN.

They may ship the full pallet, any number of cartons from the pallet, or cartons from the finished goods storage area. They don’t want to break down the pallets to record the serial numbers when the parts are shipped.

I am interested in suggestions on how to accomplish this.
