German term or phrase: Plattformumfänge
From an auto industry document about quality proof tests for the pre-production phase:

"Es gilt, daß bei *Plattformumfängen* das ersteinsetzende Werk für die Erstbemusterung zuständig ist. Werden die Teile schließlich konzernweit eingesetzt, so ist bei Nachbemusterungen in Folge von Änderungen das Werk mit der Entwicklungshoheit für eine Musterprüfung zuständig. Sollte es dennoch Unklarheiten darüber geben, welches Konzernwerk für eine Bemusterung zuständig ist, wenden Sie sich bitte im Vorfeld an die zuständige Logistikabteilung."

(a range of) standardised components/parts
Explanation:
The term "Plattform" is used, I believe, to refer basically to a floor-pan; such as the Ford Mondeo has a common floor-pan with the Jaguar "S"; the Polo with one of the the Seats, etc., etc. I think this is referring to the "first use" of such a standardised component. The site below defines the word quite well, I'd say:

Ziel ist es, Standardkomponenten (Plattformumfänge) möglichst. früh in den Montageprozess einfließen zu lassen. Hierdurch wird der ???Baum“ schlanker. ...
