Hey all, My company is implementing a new line with fully electronic traveler/device history record. The system is 100% validated. However, the system is being programmed to assign the serial number to the device at the final inspection check. The argument being that this is done electronically and 100% verified by the system and not impacted by the final quality associate. My concern here is that this seems late in the process to assign the serial number. On the paper records, the serial number is assigned at the beginning by the ERP system. What if there is an issue prior to the QC step and the assembly gets taken off the line and segregated? Without a serial number, how is it identified? Does anyone have any experience with a similar situation?
