Hello, we're after a little help with a query.
Our client has a requirement to have 'batch numbers'. A batch number is a reference which shows from which particular constituent ingredients a particular product contains. So if any product needs to be recalled because of an issue with ingredients (or whatever) the batch can be looked up, and orders containing products from within that batch can be traced.
A batch number may cross many variants of different products, and may vary within variants of the same products, unlike a SKU.
I don't know enough about barcodes to know if a barcode can retain the 'uniquess' of a product variant and also store batch info without being a completely different barcode, if that makes sense!
I hope that's clear! Has anyone come across and been able to deal with this kind of scenario?
