Explanation: Same explanation with others. I used this term in translating a machinery's patent, which caliculated some proportion. However, my husband said that "proportion" means "to move forward" as well, and there is a device called like that in a place such as an engine room. So, if that is the case, depending on your context, it could be like, 発進装置 (hasshin souchi). Good Luck!
