Federation Supply Class

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Federation Supply Class (FSC) component of the Federation Stock Number (FSN) which is the 14-digit alphanumeric identifier within the Starfleet Codification System to identify specific items of supply.

A supply class covers a relatively homogeneous area of items, in respect to their physical or performance characteristics, or in the respect that the items included therein are such as are usually requisitioned or issued together, or constitute a related grouping for supply management purposes.


The supply class, identified by the red call-out in the diagram above, signifies the class of an item within its Federation Supply Group, identified by the purple call-out. Together they signify the Federation Supply Classification Group (FSCG) that the item belongs in. The FSCG is the first portion of the of three main sections—the others being the Codification Bureau code prefix, and the Starfleet Item Identification Number (SIIN)—to form a unique FSN for a specific item of supply.
