As an ISO 9001:2008/ASA-100 accredited distributor, we at ASAP Semiconductor are recognized for our exhaustive catalogue of both current and obsolete product lines. Through our proprietary website Just NSN-Parts, customers in the Aerospace, Aviation, Industrial, Military and Defense industries are able to find a comprehensive list of parts we supply and their corresponding National Stock Numbers.
To standardize 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, called the National Stock Number (NSN), comprises of 13 digits which are broken down into the 2 following identifying subcategories:
For example, an existing roller assembly we sell at ASAP Semiconductor has a 13-digit NSN of 3910-00-088-4649. The FSCG is represented by 3910, and the NIIN by 000884649
Continuing on, the FSCG and NIIN can be broken down even further into the following classifying subcategories:
In the above roller assembly example, the FSG is represented by 39, and the FSC by 10.
In the above roller assembly example, the NCB is represented by 00 (USA).
