Development of Off-Road Machinery Identification Standards 801025

Historically, names that have been used to identify types of off-road work machines were established by the early manufacturers and often were not very descriptive of the main purpose of the machine. SAE undertook a program to construct a logical terminology system, intended to establish names that would describe the principal work function of the machine, at the same time to select such names that would be recognized and used, or translated, in non-English using areas of the world. This SAE effort was carried forward in close coordination with a similar program in the International Standards Organization.
