Serial Numbers
The primary purpose of a serial number is to give a specific unit its own identification. No two pieces of equipment are numbered the same, thus providing the equipment owner a means of identification and proof of ownership.

Serial numbers may also provide useful information about the equipment. Some manufacturers attach a prefix or series designation to the serial number, indicating perhaps geographic origin or special features of the equipment.

Finally, serial numbers can be used to identify the age of the equipment. The methods of numbering the units vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. Some assign numbers according to the year the equipment was actually built; others assign numbers when the finished equipment is shipped out of the plant.
