Use Impressive Buzzwords when Explaining SAP Concepts

Use the following

"The Heuristics Logistics Projections of Materials provides a Systematic and Responsive approach enabling the Capability Provision for Contingencies Planning in your Organization." 

Instead of the plain word below

"MRP Run"

Use words where people will never understand when you combine them together. In this way, "No One will know what the SAP Consultant is Talking about and also too afraid to Admit about it, Therefore the Consultant walks through the Project easier and the customer is left with the MRP Shit after the Consultant left. As no one understood what the Consultant did, as everything said sounds Powerful and Complicated, so it must be a good thing until MRP failed miserably after Project went life and the Consultant already left the Project!
