VIS Order Processing Terminology

There are a number of ways how in the belting industry a particular piece of belting is described.  For example, one company might understand under the name 'coil' a full width, full length production roll, while another company is calling the same item a 'slab'.  To improve communication and prevent misunderstandings, we publish the following terminology that our company operates on.
