Onboarding team

The IBM Food Trust™ Onboarding team member role authorizes users in your organization to upload product data, such as supply chain events and transactions. An Account admin for your organization must create your onboarding team, which should include your supply chain experts and data integration specialists.

Before adding an Onboarding team member, ensure that they have a registered IBMid for authenticating to IBM Food Trust. Then add their name, and the email address used to register their IBMid, to the Onboarding team members page in the Onboarding module.

Onboarding data

Data that your Onboarding team members will upload include GS1, or IBM Food Trust, identifiers (IDs) for food products, ingredients, and raw materials, and also for facilities (locations), such as food processing plants, distribution centers, and warehouses. Your Onboarding team members will also upload business transaction data, such as Purchase Orders, Despatch Advice (Advanced Shipping Notice) and Receive Advice documents, and event data, such as food product Commission, Aggregation, and Transformation events. Uploading facility inspection and licensing certificates, and related documents, is also supported through the Documents module.
