Tech/Engineering - Manufacturing / Production
German term or phrase: betriebswichtig
Artikelspezifikationen - betriebswichtige Hinweise.

Found in the Italian translation of a German document, now in back translation; the Italian translator left 'betriebswichtige Hinweise' untranslated without comment, so the original context is lost.
Does it correspond to "mission-critical" now so popular in U.S. business advertising?

important for business/ for operation


Explanation:
Exact answer depends on context. It could be related to handling equipment for example, or advancing one's business. I would steer clear of "mission critical", as it misssion would be Auftrag or Aufgabe, an its buisness hype anyway.
