German to English translations [PRO]
Tech/Engineering - SAP
German term or phrase: CEOS
Thiscomes from a presentation about how to improve a manufacturing company's processes. One suggestion is:

Standardisierung der Beschaffung von Betriebsmitteln (z.B. CEOS-Einsatz für Beschaffung von Hilfs- und Betriebsmitteln)

Can anyone help me with "CEOS"? My searches so far have produced only CEOs (Chief Executive Officers) and Committee for Earth Observation Satellites - and I'm pretty sure it can't be either of these.

I suspect it is a proprietary name for a specific procurement system, and thus should be left untranslated.
