Lubricants - A substance introduced to reduce friction between surfaces in mutual contact, which ultimately reduces the heat generated when the surfaces move. It may also have the function of transmitting forces, transporting foreign particles, or heating or cooling the surfaces. The property of reducing friction is known as lubricity.

Manufacturing Process - Manufacturing process management (MPM) is a collection of technologies and methods used to define how products are to be manufactured. MPM differs from ERP/MRP which is used to plan the ordering of materials and other resources, set manufacturing schedules, and compile cost data. Manufacturing Scheduling -The process of arranging, controlling and optimizing work and workloads in a production process or manufacturing process. Scheduling is used to allocate plant and machinery resources, plan human resources, plan production processes and purchase materials. Material Testing Technicians- Performs more difficult and responsible sampling and testing of a variety of soils and construction materials in the field or laboratory; has responsibility for explaining and enforcing regulations, policies and legal provisions related to sampling and testing of construction materials; oversees the work testing aides in the field or laboratory; and records log of daily work performed and time and materials expended. Materials Science- Study of the properties of solid materials and how those properties are determined by the material's composition and structure. Materials Sourcing - To link the company's business needs with the capabilities of external suppliers. For this linkage to provide real value supply must be able to interface with two very different worlds—the external world of the marketplace and suppliers and the internal world of business units, projects, and functions. The strategies for effective sourcing simultaneously balance design elements of structure, information, people, goals and measures and external alignments. This required research on extant literature and gleanings from on-ground experience across sourcing professionals. Mathematics (Math) - the science of numbers and their operations, interrelations, combinations, generalizations, and abstractions and of space configurations and their structure, measurement, transformations, and generalizations. Measure: Ascertain the size, amount, or degree of (something) by using an instrument or device marked in standard units or by comparing it with an object of known size. Metal Reclamation - Scrap metal originates both in business and residential environments and consists of left over, re-used, or unused metal materials. Scrap is often taken to a wrecking yard (also known as a scrapyard, junkyard, or breaker's yard), where it is processed for later melting into new products. Scrap prices may vary markedly over time and in different locations. Prices are often negotiated among buyers and sellers directly or indirectly. Prices displayed as the market prices are not the prices that recyclers will see at the scrap yards. Micro Electronics - A subfield of electronics. As the name suggests, microelectronics relates to the study and manufacture (or microfabrication) of very small electronic designs and components. Usually, but not always, this means micrometre-scale or smaller. These devices are typically made from semiconductor materials. Micro Machining - The techniques used in fabricating the miniaturized devices and moving parts into which microelectronic circuitry is integrated Mobil Technology - Technology that is portable; it refers to any device that you can carry with you to perform a wide variety of “tasks”. It is technology that allows those tasks to be performed via cellular phone, PDA, vehicles, laptops, etc. A standard mobile device has gone from being no more than a simple two-way pager to being a cellular phone, a GPS navigation system, a web browser, and instant messenger system, a video gaming system, and much more. It includes the use of a variety of transmission media such as: radio wave, microwave, infra-red, GPS and Bluetooth to allow for the transfer of data via voice, text, video, 2-dimensional barcodes and more. Mobile Apps - Software programs that can be downloaded and accessed directly using mobile phone or another mobile device – like a tablet or music player. Mobile Service Technicians - Works in the field of mobile technology and is proficient with the relevant skills and techniques, with a relatively practical understanding of the theoretical principles. Experienced technicians typically have intermediate understanding of theory and expert proficiency in technique. They are generally licensed or certified. Multi-Cultural Workforce - The phrase "multicultural workforce" refers to the changing age, sex, ethnicity, physical ability, race, and sexual orientation of employees across all types and places of work in the United States. Multicultural workforce as a descriptive term or phrase has, however, largely been supplanted by the term "diversity" in describing the increasing heterogeneity of the workplace through the inclusion of different groups of people. While "multicultural workforce" is s F
