My only confusion is if an item is serial base item why the instance number is required to keep track of it.Same can be done with the help of serial number also??
can anyone clear this point.I am confused

well...i have got the answer.My question was serial number and instance number uniquely identify an item.serial number is generated or given when item is a serialized item and instance number is generated when it is tracked in install base.why we need to generate two unique numbers for the same item?I got the answer for metalink.Please close this thread.
