UNHRD Alerts is a report on DOTS that pulls the relevant data from WINGS and allows hubs to directly monitor their respective data in "real time". In fact the the report updates automatically approximately every two hours. Therefore, the report supports the Logistics Teams to monitor the activities related to outbound movements started with standard UNHRD sales process. It allows to spot any open item starting from materials listed in the Sales Orders waiting for Outbound Deliveries to be created, going up to the monitoring of Proof of Deliveries for the Outbound Deliveries, including alerts on potential wrong data e.g. wrong commodity values, missing means of transport, etc.

UNHRD Alerts Focal Points

At each hub level, the Hub Managers nominate a DOTS focal point who grants consistency of local sales and operational data by the use of UNHRD alerts report on DOTS. Hub Managers nominate also alternates to the main Focal Points. to perform same roles in case of focal point's absence.

DOTS focal points must run the report at least once a week to ensure that involved staff and Hub Manager are promptly informed in case of wrong data, to ensure that required corrections are applied, when applicable, to grant solidity of sale flows and consistency of operational data. Also, keeping this data under control ensures that Information Management resources are ready and completed at any given time while weekly checks reduce the time required to correct data.

In case of intense activity it is recommended to step up controls and inspect the UNHRD Alerts space on daily base.

Information available on the UNHRD Alerts report

The UNHRD Alerts page on DOTS includes the information on below statistics:

Open SOs (SOs without ODs): these are the SOs issued with regards to any operational matters that require despatching of NFI/FI from Inventory Stock or thru Direct Delivery or thru In-transit processes, which have not generated the consequent ODs. The list includes balance of quantities not despatched from the SO (i.e., when SO quantity is higher than quantity on OD), as this is considered as an "open quantity" waiting to be eventually included in a second OD or delta to be removed from SO. Keeping this data under control prevents the so called “overbooking” and allows to cancel commitments no longer required of stocks (e.g. when Partner’s opts out or request to reduce cargo configuration). Also the list highlights eventual "over-picking", i.e., when the quantity on the Outbound Delivery exceed the quantity on the SO. This features support the Logistics team to eventually spot and highlight the matter to Management. Any of this case make the SO "open".

Open ODs (ODs without GIs): these are the ODs that might have not been despatched yet or those despatched but requiring the Good Issue to be posted. Keeping this data under control allows the control of missing GI postings and ensure the alignment of stock in WMS with physical balances on hands.

Open PODs (ODs with GIs but without PODs): these are the ODs with Good Issues posted that therefore have been despatched and not yet received at final destination or eventual ODs that have been received by consignees and requiring Proof of Delivery to be posted. Keeping this data under control allows Customer Service to monitor the Sales closure as PODs is one of the requirements that trigger the submission of Service Confirmation Form to Finance for Sales closure or to spot missing PoD postings.

ODs without Means of Transport: this view lists the ODs where the indicator of Means of Transport has not been filled in any of the document that precedes it. In fact the system simply warns the user if no means of transport is filled at Inquiry/Quotation/Sales Order stages, as it is not a mandatory field. This type of warnings should not be ignored by the users at any stage. Anyhow the systems allows the editing of the means of transport at any stage, and lastly at OD stage, even if GI is already posted. Keeping this data under control ensures that Information Management resources are ready and completed at any given time.

OD with Zero Measure Materials: this view shows eventual ODs containing material with zero value, zero gross weight or zero volume. Keeping this data under control allows Logistics and Information Management teams to monitor the cases where the information on cargo despatched don't reflect expected data
