Tech/Engineering
English term or phrase: FEED, P&ID, MTO
Could you help me with the following abbreviations?

FEED - front-end engineering and design

P&ID - Piping and Instrumentation Diagram

MTO - material take-off
Michaela Moosbrugger
German translation:RI-Fliessbild
Explanation:
P&I diagram is called Rohrleitungs- und Instrumentierungsfliessbild. Normally you will find it abbreviated as RI-Fliessbild.

MTO- Materialdisposition, this is a list of components that will have to supplied.
FEED- Front-end engineering is the second stage of planning a project, which follows tendering phase. I do not know of a German term for it, since I have heard German engineers use this term, just as they commonly use Detail engineering as a German word for the next and final phase of planning a project. I have worked on numerous engineering projects around Leipzig, BRD and therefore have come across them very often!
Hope this helps!
