German term or phrase: OP
The context is information to be included in the data matrix code of a manufactured component (rear axle).

There are 2 examples:
Tageszahl der Fertigungs-OP
Fertigungsinformationen (auf welche OPs gefertigt, Bearbeitungszeit).

I suspect that this refers to a station along the assembly line, but I'd like to know for sure what OP stands for.

Thanks, Kevin

OP = Operation = station, as you suggest!
In a line die e.g., each station gets an "OP" number.
