manufacturer part number (BoM) (MPN)

In the manufacturing of products, the Manufacturer Part Number (MPN) is a unique identifier for each individual component.

An example of this is the manufacture of printed circuit boards. The MPN number should not be confused with the reference identifier, which identifies each specific component in the BOM of the PCB and its specific location on the PCB. Since there may be multiple components with different reference designators that may have the same manufacturer part number, the MPN number provides traceability to ensure supply chainintegrity. In PCB design, component selection may be the most important task, as successful operation depends on the quality and reliability of the components.
