Numbering scheme

There are many different numbering schemes for assigning nominal numbers to entities. These generally require an agreed set of rules, or a central coordinator. The schemes can be considered to be examples of a primary key of a database management system table, whose table definitions require a database design.

Numbering schemes include:


  • Chemistry 1
  • Communications 2
  • Locations 3
  • Products 4
  • People 5
  • Topics 6
  • Transportation 7
  • Others/general 8
  • See also 9
