German term or phrase: Prämissen
I am translating a text on planning a company's activities. The word "Prämissen" appears in the text. Some examples of its use:

Allgemeine Prämissen zur Planung (heading for document)

Die Planung zur Realisierung des derzeitigen Auftragsbestandes bzw. der in Endverhandlung befindlichen und noch in 2008 eingehenden Aufträge erfolgt auf Basis anderer Prämissen als die Planung der ab 2009 verkauften Standardanlagen, bei den bestehenden Aufträgen erfolgt die Planung aufgrund des kürzeren
Planungshorizontes zum großen Teil projektindividuell (siehe Prämissen zu Absatz und Erlösen / Kosten).

Prämissen in Zahlen (heading for columns with percentages underneath)

Prämissen zu Bilanz- und Liquiditätsplanung

Prämissen zu den sonstigen Umsätzen
(Planung und Genehmigung, Service und Wartung, Labor)

Other subheadings are: Kosten, Personalkosten, Materialkosten / aktivierungsfähige Herstellungskosten, Forderungen/Verbindlichkeiten, Lagerbestand, Bürgschaften, Ertragsteuern

It sounds like they mean "forecasted costs". Am I right or can anyone think of an alternative?
