Intelligent Part Number (IPN)
There are several types of intelligent part numbers, defined for an Infor CPQ configuration:
- A sequential item number. For example, if this is the third "Bike" to be configured, its part number is "Bike-03."
- A number based on the CEP (configuration entry point), which is the order and line number for which the new item is configured. For example, if the order number is "C000124" and the line is "1" the new item number is "Bike-C000124-1."
- A smart part number which builds the new item's part number based on elements in the configuration. For example, a silver mountain bike with chrome wheels could be "Mtn-Sl-Chr."
