I believe the numbers are relative. That is to say that something labelled S15 will be run before something labelled S16. I would thing that those things labelled with the same number would be run in alphabetical order, so S15A would run before S15B, and so on. The K numbers should work in the same way.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.
