Planned useAdd to every item for which a part number can be found

Motivation[edit]

While working on CPUs, I noticed that this property does not seem to exist. I had primarly CPUs in mind, but I'm sure there are a lot more items that have a part number in real life.
However, as shown in the example, there can be more than one part number for the same productname. So you have to be able to add some sort of referece to the information (eg. "OEM" or "boxed" or something like that) --D-Kuru (talk) 17:22, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

(in such a case we don’t have to discriminate between the user part number to the manufacturer one because it’s used by a user in a design)
Or … there is several numbers because there is subdesigns by the manufacturer of the same processor, in which case it may be possible to subclass the processor model item with fresh new items to reflect that, with their own properties and values to reflect the differences. author  TomT0m / talk page 19:25, 18 August 2019 (UTC)
As far as I know the CPU type has a unique ID that changes under some conditions. The manufacturer is not such a condition - at least as far as I know. Since the ID is unique to every processor type I switched the datatype to external-id. It seems that the different numbers are more to indicate which segment of the global market is targeted. If the CPUs ID is ABC1 in the boxed version you will not find an appropriate CPU when it is labled ABC2. Even they are actually the same die under the hood. I don't think that a new item is really the route to go if there is just a different ID, but all other values stay the same. You don't create a new item for every version of some program, do you? --D-Kuru (talk) 20:58, 20 August 2019 (UTC)
Pictogram voting question.svg Question Is this at all related to Global Trade Item Number (P3962)? See also the discussion on this old proposal. ArthurPSmith (talk) 17:50, 19 August 2019 (UTC)
Yes and now I would say. The part number is not the European Article Number. There is no bar code on the processor. But it's shares some properties since it's also a unique ID for every product. --D-Kuru (talk) 21:00, 20 August 2019 (UTC)
