We are working on updating our lot code nomenclature across the board. I am curious if you have opinions on how specific you like your suppliers to be in their lot code explanation. Are you mainly looking for date of manufacture where if our lot code is using Julian date that is explained? If most of our lot code is used for internal purposes is that enough information for you? I've listed an example below and the wording I would like to use.
The first 3 digits are used for internal tracking purposes and the next 3 digits represent the product’s date of production, using Julian date, the final 3 digits represent other internal traceability information.
