To ensure consistency in its sourcing processes, the U.S. Department of Defense put into place a system that uniquely and permanently identifies the items that it purchases. This system, dubbed the National Stock Number (NSN), is made of 13 digits which are broken down into the 2 following categorizing parts:
For example, an existing seeder attachment has a 13-digit NSN of 37-10-01-0313793. The FSCG is represented by 3710, and the NIIN by 010313793.
Furthermore, the FSCG and NIIN can be broken down even further into the following classifying parts:
In the above seeder attachment example, the FSG is represented by 37, and the FSC by 10.
In the above seeder attachment example, the NCB is represented by 01 (USA).
