Tech/Engineering - Military / Defense / Technical spec
French term or phrase: rapatriement de charge
in a spec I have the following in a paragraph concerning the first article inspection process:
Après industrialisation et au début de la phase série pour les nouveaux produits
Après une évolution industrielle majeure (process, procédure, rapatriement de charge, etc…)"

I'm stumbling on the "rapatriement de charge". Is this relocation, cost repatriation, or something completely different?

Any help greatly appreciated. TIA.

insourcing of work/effort/workload
Explanation:
I'm reasonably sure of the general meaning, less sure of the best terms to couch it in.

It basically means taking (some of) the work back from the contractor, and doing it in-house (presumably, I suppose it could conceivably mean giving it back to whoever usually does it, in the event that this is a new supplier).
If it's going back in-house, then in-sourcing (opposite of outsourcing) is the jargon.

Charge = charge de travail = effort in project mgt speak, again, some other term may be more appropriate.

Asker: Hi Charlie, this fits my clumsy "relocation" thoughts; insourcing is nice!
