This discussion is intended to be helpful in achieving coordination of the various departments to save time and to obtain uniformity. Numbers are used for two important purposes, namely, to indicate a quantity and to identify. Both uses are extremely important to the Aircraft Weight Engineer. A number is used to indicate the weight of an article. A group of numbers is used to identify the article and each individual homogeneous piece of material used in its fabrication. The identification numbers may be merely serial or consecutive; or they may be selected numbers which have a two-fold purpose, namely, to servo as a classifying medium as well as a serial number. This paper is prepared to illustrate the inherent value of the latter.
