S204

Unload

The activities associated with unloading the transportation vehicle. This may include inspection for damage, counting or weighing out to determine delivered volumes, taking samples for analysis and depalletizing, unpacking, repacking, repalletizing where needed.

An important part of a Source-to-Order process is the ability to track the order specifics. This requires the purchase order number, production order number or customer order number to be recorded from this process onward. This inventory is typically considered Sales Order Stock.

Use Cases

  • Standard process of unloading a truck onto the receiving dock
  • JIS delivery scheduling
  • In Retail: Unloading a Special Order item

Notes

Typically this process is complete when the product is ready for put away or transfer. Some use cases require the unloading process to put the product away immediately. For example: For bulk products the (tanker, tanker truck or dump truck) unloading process cannot be separated from the put away process (storage tanks).

Generally the costs to S203 and Unload are part of CO11. For a distribution network the costs of these processes may be classified as CO12.
