6 Introduction Logistics is now widely recognised as a highly important function of every organisation dealing with physical goods (and of many that do not). In order to make it work effectively along the total physical and information chains of supply, delivery and planning, it uses a number of terms that, while in frequent use, are rarely fully defined. The wider dissemination of logistics concepts has brought about the creation of new terms and changes in meaning of older terms; these need to be understood throughout Europe. Although the word logistics has military origins, the concepts and functions of logistics are nowadays adopted by all kinds of private-sector and public-sector organisations as well as in the military sector. In this European Standard the terms are defined with reference to the needs of commercial organisations, i.e. business systems. Most of the definitions are also appropriate for non-commercial organisations. In preparing this list of terms stringent selection criteria have been applied. The Glossary lists only those terms that have a realistic relationship with logistics. Terms of a general nature, having a meaning which is identical to or very similar to the definition to be found in a conventional dictionary, are not listed. Similarly, terms which are frequently used in a logistics environment but which originate from a different business function or are of a specialist nature are not listed. This refers in particular to terms in the areas of: finance; commerce, including payment terms; information technology; mathematics. Terms are defined by reference to their usage in European organisations, although some terms and definitions of American origin that have achieved wide acceptance are also included. Important sources of information have included: Terminology in Logistics: Terms & Definitions. European Logistics Association (ELA), Brussels, 1994 BS 5191 Production Planning and Control Terms - Vocabulary. British Standards Institution (BSi), London (new edition in press). APICS Dictionary (10th edition). APICS, Falls Church, VA, USA, 2000 Where possible, reference has been made to existing de jure and de facto standards such as: UN Trade Data Elements Directory Delivery conditions as described by the International Chamber of Commerce 4
7 UN / EDIFACT: United Nations Electronic Data Interchange for Administration andtransport. Economic Commission for Europe, ISBN Throughout, consistency with terms used in ISO, EDI and other publications has been sought. This Glossary is an update and extension of pen 12777, although some terms which are now considered out-of-date have been eliminated. A number of new terms have been added as a consequence of new developments in the field of logistics. The sequence of entries in the Glossary is purely alphabetical, for simplicity and ease of use. In addition an Annexe provides a categorisation of terms. A second Annex lists logistics-related acronyms. A recent CEN Report (CR 13908), prepared by CEN/TC 273/WG 4 Logistics Performance Measures, Requirements and Measuring Methods, deals comprehensively with the definition and measurement of performance in logistics. Consequently only a limited number of logistics performance indicators has been included in this Glossary of terms. 5
8 1 Scope This European Standard establishes definitions for commonly used terms in logistics. It encompasses all aspects of logistics and supply chain management including transport. The terms, with their definitions, are presented in strict alphabetical order with no attempt to relate them to any particular function within the logistics concept. 2 Normative references Not applicable. 3 Terms and definitions 3.1 A item small group of items (material or product) that according to an ABC classification, represent a large part of the total consumption value, production value, turnover value or stocks [See: ABC classification] 3.2 ABC analysis (Pareto-analysis) method of analysis where items are sorted according to certain characteristics (e.g. historical or anticipated consumption multiplied by unit value), into sequential order and stratified into classes 3.3 ABC classification classification of a group of items (materials or products) into three or more categories stratified in sequence of their importance or magnitude, e.g. for the purpose of stock control and planning. NOTE The classification is the result of an ABC analysis. The categories being designated, for example, A, B and C, where: A: small group of items (materials or products) that represents a large part of the total consumption value, production value, turnover value or stocks. Most attention is paid to this category; B: intermediate group that is paid less attention; C: large group of items (materials or products) that represent only a small part of the total consumption value, production value, turnover value or stocks. Relatively speaking, this category receives the least attention and requires mostly a different solution 3.4 ABC zoning assignment of storage locations in a store to one of three or more areas (zones) according to travel distance/time to the point of supply in order to minimise travel time 3.5 abnormal demand see: incidental demand 6
