Top Forums UNIX for Dummies Questions & Answers OEM - what does this abbreviation stand for? Post 18158 by S.Vishwanath on Monday 25th of March 2002 08:23:02 AM

It means the company that manufactured this Equipment/Machine.

The company that manufacture's Equipments/Machines/Softwares will have to follow certain standards in the product before they reach the Public. There might be lots of laws/reasons why this should be followed. But how ever to be more simpler., it should compley with Industry Standards & should be safe enough.

Every company will have its own Rules, Regulations, Standards & Licencing Implications on the product that they manufacture & sell to the Public.

So, probably while installing new systems u will come accross this OEM being mentioned on Manuals & Installation Software., which says that u are installing a Genuine Product duly Authorized & Licenced from the Original Equipment Manufacturer.
