Technical Coverage

In my opinion the scope of Technical Coverage i.e. a definition of what the maintenance includes / excludes.

SlashSupport’s broad, in-depth technical foundation provides deeper technical coverage than typical product support teams. This has helped solving more complex problems.

Technical Boundary (ies)

I understand that "Périmètre Technique" refers to the technical limits of a certain plant, like a refinery.
Some examples with the same meaning of a "perimeter":
"... that are so large that the technical boundaries of the entire refinery industry are encountered, it is necessary to regard these outputs as dependent. ..." found at page 154 of Handbook on Life Cycle Assessment, by J. B. Guinée (In 1992 the Centre of Environmental Science (CML) at Leiden University, The Netherlands, published a Guide on Environmental Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology ). www.springer.com/environment/book/978-1-4020-0557-2

ncrease the maturity of the current fuel cell technology by operating 21 + 6 fuel cell buses at seven European locations and two locations in Australia and China over 12 months in extreme climatic and technical boundary conditions.
Eight countries (Belgium, France, Czechoslovakia, USSR, Germany, Korea, UK and US) providedcontributions. In this study, a broad range of technical boundary conditions, i.e. reactor type (PWR, BWR),power output (440 MWe to 1 300 MWe) and cycle length (12 to 24 months cycles), was considered
