Is there a way to label an entity with an ID (customer vechile ID) as it moves around the different maintenance shop?

The ID is coming from an excel file.

Thanks

Yes, let's say your entity is created using an Orders table, where the entity has a 'row' in the table associated with it (with arrival time and other data, presumably the customer ID as you mentioned from the excel file). Then, within the ModelEntity object, find the Display Name property (under Advanced Options). The table name/column name can be referenced within the Display Name (and then the Display Name, ModelEntity.DisplayName) referenced from the Dynamic Label Text property - see the SchedulingBicycleAssembly example under Support ribbon, Examples. Then, when the entity moves around the maintenance shop / manufacturing floor, etc., it will be labelled with the information associated with the entity (ID) from the table.
