The UII may be derived from a DoD recognized IUID equivalent [e.g., Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)] or a composite structure defined by the DoD [refer to Concatenated UII Construct 1 and Concatenated UII Construct 2]. Formation of the UII relies upon two primary methods of serialization: (1) Serialization within the enterprise and (2) Serialization within the original part number of the enterprise. Refer to OSD policy and supporting documentation for specific guidance at http://www.acq.osd.mil/dpap/pdi/uid/index.html.1. Concatenated UII Construct 1. This is a concatenated UII based upon serialization within the enterprise. The concatenated UII Construct 1 contains the Issuing Agency Code, Enterprise Identifier, and serial number.2. Concatenated UII Construct 2. This is a concatenated UII based upon serialization within the part, lot or batch number within the enterprise. The concatenated UII Construct 2 contains the IAC, EID, original part number, lot or batch number, and the serial number.
Which number would you find in a binary code? While the decimal number system uses the number 10 as its base, the binary system uses 2. Furthermore, although the decimal system uses the digits 0 through 9, the binary system uses only 0 and 1, and each digit is referred to as a bit.
