To ensure consistency in its supply chain 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), consists of 13 digits which are broken down into the 2 following identifying parts:
For example, an existing blade has a 13-digit NSN of 38-05-00-0092148. The FSCG is represented by 3805, and the NIIN by 000092148.
Furthermore, the FSCG and NIIN can be broken down even further into the following classifying parts:
In the above blade example, the FSG is represented by 38, and the FSC by 05.
In the above blade example, the NCB is represented by 00 (USA).
