English term or phrase: business manager
How would you translate business manager in these examples:

"To date, business managers within industrial enterprises have had limited visibility into their production operations. We will explain how business managers will be able to close the enterprise business control loop with up-to-the-minute information on key business metrics right from their desktops."

So BMs are "doing business", but are they just kaufmännisch verantwortlich or is it the entire non-technical management. In any case, what's the German term? And what about that §$%& "business control loop"?

Betriebsleiter


Explanation:
you could say that too, especially when it comes to production.. and, yes, the disctinction between "kaufmännischen" and "technischen" Leiter is actually there, especially in mid-sized companies and large corporations, where management is highly differentiated..but the answers first given are correct, of course.

Definitely not. The Betriebsleiters always had the production information at hand - it's about the other guys. But thanks, anyway
