Gents - I notice a lot of guys using acronyms a lot in threads. Some of these I don't understand like OED etc. Can anyone do a listing of common acronyms for the lesser gifted in this area? Might be a good sticky?

OEM=Original Equipment Manufacturer

 

Usually used to refer to products made by the same parts supplies company that supplies goods to a bigger company that assembles products.

 

eg: Bosch supply goods to Renault, and will produce packaging with Renault's artwork and Renault's part numbers - this would be considered a Renault part. Then imagine Bosch selling this same part in their own Bosch-branded packaging - this would be referred to as an OEM part.

But, if Renault 'Manufactured' a certain part... and you referred to it as OEM, that's still correct yes?

The reason "bump" is used:

 

When a new reply to a topic is posted, it is, when next viewed, at the top of the forum again. When nothing of value is added to the thread, the sole reason for posting would be seen to "bump" that thread up the order. Writing bump merely lets everyone else know that's what you're doing. :wink:
