unique IDs for different models

my question is this:  is it possible to have separate unique IDs for several different models in unique ID field? for example the table below:


Unique IDModel
mID1-0001Model 1
mID1-0002Model 1
mID2-0001Model 2
mID2-0002Model 2
mID3-0001Model 3

Model 3


if one can have multiple different IDs, how would one go about implementing it?  can/should it be done via scripts or calculations?


thank you and i greatly your insights and thoughts.
