English term or phrase: Autof. d.a.
In the parts list, I found "Motor gearbox K47 DT90 Autof. d.a.". I assume K47 DT90 is part of gearbox name, but I just cannot guess "Autof. d.a.". Is it auto of d.a.? (still I have no idea what d.a. is)..

Japanese translation:Final Design Approval
Explanation:
The "auto" part is connected to the part name.

As in "automatic transmission".

The "f.d.a." part is separate, but its meaning is anyone's guess.

I often see "fda" standing for "final design approval" in many of the translations I do, but I can't be 100% sure in this case.

It may be best to check with your coordinator regarding acronyms used by the client company.

Hope this helps.
