German term or phrase: projektiert
'Die kompakten Baumaße 126 x 136 x 105 (BxHxT) sind projektiert für den Wandaufbau und ermöglichen eine leichte Integration in bestehenden Anlagen.'
This sentence refers to the housing for a peristaltic pump.

designed for
Explanation:
The compact dimensions are designed for wall mounting and allow for easy integration into existing plants.

Meaning: This pump is so small you can hang it on a wall or on an existing frame/panel. Thus you don't have an extra item standing around, and can easily connect wires and/or hoses.

This seems to be similar to the type of pumps I used a lot in my former job as an engineer.

planned, projected


Explanation:
Although it would be nice to have a little more context, it appears that the discussion is about proposed construction. So the above measurements are what the architect/contractor proposes for the wall construction.

planned, designed


Explanation:
To design according to Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary (tenth edition) can mean to create, fashion, execute, or construct according to plan, therefore design in my opinion would be the best translation to projektieren...
