Spanish term or phrase: Sistema productivo CM/model CPA
Hi all,

I'm having a little trouble with these Spanish terms in a company's forward planning document: "Sistema productivo CM" and "modelo productivo CPA" (the document states that the company has changed their production model from the one to the other). I'm not sure what the abbreviations stand for. Possibilities that come to mind are "Coste Medio" and "Coste por Acción" respectively. Or perhaps they are in English already: perhaps "Cost Management" and "Cost per Action". Help! Anyone?
