You can use this component to identify and differentiate between individual items of material. This component therefore ideally supplements the material master record, which may contain all data for describing and managing a piece of material, but which does not enable you to differentiate between individual items of that material.

You can see its integration with the PM, QM, IM, PI etc...

Check the link to see the example and more details:

Hope it helps...
