It is essential to be familiar with the technical terms used within the product and working field.

You know how complete trucks are used when it comes to the customer interface and especially handling of the bodybuilder functions e.g. using winch, use of a loading crane and handling a three-way tipper. Simply be familiar in what the user of the vehicle experience and need.
