Bus/Financial - Manufacturing / auto mfgr internal operations
French term or phrase: d'économie
Having trouble w/syntax here. This doc is a report from an auto mfgr and they're discussing ways of making operations more efficient.

Is it possible that 'd'économie' means 'brief' here or does it necessarily mean 'cost-reduction'?
