Explanation:
MTM (méthode de travail & tables de temps) = MTM (motion timemeasurement / method-time measurement system)

I woudl agree with the two previous answerers on this one.

However, as for "VP", unless there is a letter missing, I have only ever seen Vente Par Correspondance (mail order) represented by VPC. I was wondering if VP did not in fact correspond to Versement Préalable, thus Advance pamyent (AP) ?

Connie thought your thoughts on VP might be right. I am still not sure what they mean because this document is about the sale of automobiles. Obviously, "vente par correspondance" wouldn't work here.
Thanks

However, for "vente par correspondance" (or mail-order selling), the abreviation in French is "VPC" (just a little clarification).
