This document describes a set of standardized reports that can be generated using the logistics product data elements contained in GEIA-STD-0007-B. Each report is defined by selection options, processing, format, report sequence, and data sources. The selection options paragraph identifies recommended mandatory and optional selections that can be made by the user to tailor the report content. The processing paragraph identifies qualifying criteria for report data, report calculations, and specific instructions regarding how the data should be presented on the report. Each report has a sample report showing its format. Report sequences specify the sort criteria for a given report, and each Part/Section within a report. There is an attached listing of data sources for the elements that are on a report. The listing provides the report header for each element; and its GEIA-STD-0007-B data element/attribute along with the appropriate entity. The data source listings were developed by viewing each report in a left-to-right, top-to-bottom sequence. If an element shows up more than once on a report and each subsequent occurrence is pulled from the same GEIA-STD-0007-B Entity as the previous one, then that element is only listed once in the data source listing. However, if an element is listed more than once and each occurrence is pulled from different GEIA-STD-0007-B Entities, then that element will be listed for each report occurrence.
Report development can be accomplished via a manual process or via software. The latter approach is recommended since software is available on the market that meets the requirements for each of the reports in this handbook.
