Victor Reinz Global Part Number System Simplifies Ordering

Victor Reinz Global Part Number System Simplifies Ordering

This smart part numbering format utilizes a fully numeric system that aligns with Victor Reinz products globally.

Dana announced that it has established a global part number (GPN) system for its Victor Reinz line of products. This smart part numbering format utilizes a fully numeric part-numbering system that aligns with Victor Reinz products globally.

“Victor Reinz utilizes the same GPN system worldwide, increasing speed-to-market on new application coverage and allowing us to achieve demand coverage of more than 99 percent when indexing customers who utilize Epicor-based POS (point-of-sale) systems,” said Bill Nunnery, senior director, sales and marketing, global aftermarket for Dana. “The Victor Reinz global part number system provides our customers with simplified kit selection, ordering and inventory management and is another example of how Dana provides customers with innovative ways to improve efficiency and productivity.”

The Victor Reinz engine gasket GPN sequence is standardized to the gasket application, making it easy to find the right gasket for the job, Dana says. The part number prefix defines the part type and the nine-digit numerical format eases gasket kit selection using the smart part numbering format. In addition, the numerical nomenclature makes it easier to key in orders and optimize use of inventory on hand by matching the first seven numbers, recognizing material interchanges found in the last two digits.

For easy identification of the kits, the first two digits of the GPN define the kit type, the middle digits designate kit contents, and the last two digits designate internal changes. The numbering system clearly defines the products between a set and a single component. The same application and same kit equal the same part number anywhere in the world. 

Victor Reinz has earned the prestigious TecAlliance Certified Data Supplier (CDS) designation and Dana was recently presented with a 2021 Receiver’s Choice Award from the Automotive Content Professionals Network (ACPN).
