German term or phrase: innenmontage, werksmontage, baustellenmontage
Has anyone encountered these terms in English? I am not quite clear on the difference between Werksmontage and Baustellenmontage. Thank you.

Explanation:
innenmontage = inside assembly/shop assembly
werksmontage = shop assembly
baustellenmontage = construction site assembly

--------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------

Baustellenmontage = on-site assembly, field assembly. This would apply when a machine is assembled where it is going to be used, I think. Whereas Werksmontage is where the machine is assembled where it is manufactured. I assume Innenmontage is when the machine is assembled inside a building as opposed to out of doors.

agree  CathyFS: I agree with the first and last but have come across Werksmontage as 'plant assembly'

  -> Makes sense. For Baustellenmontage I think I prefer 'on-site assembly' in this context.
