English to German translations [PRO] Bus/Financial
English term or phrase:business buzzwords
These terms are taken from a list of 2001 goals for a purchasing department.
1- TQM - what is the German equivalent for total quality management?
2- EDI (electronic data interchange)- does this stay the same in German?
3 - "lean" manufacturing processes
4 - buy-in ("Develop commodity strategies for major industry groups with cross-functional buy-in." What buy-in means here is that all significant parties to the commodity (purchasing, engineering, manufacturing, quality, etc.) understand and are in agreement with the stated policy.)
Thanks in advance for any help.
