The system number is automatically assigned to a Cost Center or Department or Location when the cost center or department or location is created and is an internal identifier within the Asset environment.  This is an incremental number which increases whenever a create action is initiated (if the create action is not completed this number is still counted).

Cost Centers can be associated with a barcode, other cost centers, a location as well as a manager.

Departments can be associated with a barcode, other departments, a cost center, a location as well as a manager.

Locations can be associated with a barcode, other locations, subnets, a cost center as well as a manager.

A User can be associated with a barcode, a company, a department, a location as well as a manager.

A company is the only organizational type that cannot have a barcode.  Althouigh all the others can, you do not necessarily have to create one for them; however, if you want to, you can use a smart phone app to do so.
