Tech/Engineering - Law: Contract(s) / Tech. spec.
German term or phrase: h-Sätze
This is part of a list of things needing to be defined for a contract. Here is some of the context:

"Für den Ablauf sind u.a. folgend Regularien zu definieren:
[...]
- zu erwartende h-Sätze der [name of principal] Instandhaltungsmitarbeiter"

I am rather assuming "h" is the standard German abbreviation for "Stunden" (funny spelling they have over there), as it is used that way throughout the document, and the whole thing means something like the number of hours expected to be put in by the principal's maintenance workers. Can anyone out there with the requsite knowledge either confirm this impression or disabuse me of it?

Thanks in advance.

Oh, I forgot to add; it's an urgent job: they want me deliver one page at a time!

Yesm it should have been obvious. Funny how you sometimes miss the obvious when you've got an urgent project.

Thanks, Stephen.
