Part number algorithm

Why not use an algorithm for automatic part number assignment. When a new dockument , part or asm is created it will be assigned a part number based on this algorithm -  format  000 000 000 (or something else)
A document is numbered 000  
A part studio is named as 000 300
A part get its  number based on the Doc. and part studio name ex 100 300 001
ASM. and DRW  numbers based on document number and a different digit in the third group ex. 100 300 200
This follows the normal process when a mechanical structure or project is built
I use this algorithm in my project manually . I have full control without a separate database ( by including the part number to the name)
It works  can it bee automate?
