Serial Object updating serial number

In the standard IFS solution, a serial object ID is created from the combination of the Part # and Serial #. 

If that is the case, does it mean that this serial object can no longer have a change of part# or serial#? What happens if you attempt to update the serial object with a new serial#? Does the system create a new object?

I believe so, but I'm not an expert in maintenance area. 

As I see there is a direct connection between part no and serial no to the serial object, which cannot be changed.

Its possible to change serial number only in case of VIM object as per F1 documentation. But will not hold good if you are using it in 'Service and Maintenance' module (Service Management or EAM Solution). I tried this case with SM/EAM Serial object, system will not allow to do so and error pops-up saying ---> 'The serial exists in Service Management and cannot be renamed'.
