Or you may be dealing with Manufacturing unit while performing functions such as Sales, Marketing, Procurement, Planning, Design, Accounting, Finance, Store keeping and Services. In all your dealings you might be wondering on some of the terms and practices that you might be hearing in the conversations with your Manufacturing counterparts.
