German term or phrase: ablaufunabhängig
3.Stationsorganisation / ablaufunabhängig

This is a chapter heading in a manual for a logistics company. It is really a set of guidelines for partners working within the network, each of which manages a station.

Ablauf is used a lot here to talk about processing in a very general commercial setting.

Any ideas what could be intended here?

This is what 'steht darunter':

2.1 Definition of location
2.1.1. Selection of new locations
The location for a new ABC station is relevant both for the local operator and the entire system itself. The commercial success depends in part on the region’s commercial potential, the overall costs involved and the availability of suitable staff.

agree  Kcda: Yes, both are definetly possible but I also think "process independent" could also be a choice. The context does not reveal somethings that well i.e. station = network terminals etc. Process or procedure precisely would fit IMO.
