Explanation

  1. Heading is a metalworking process which incorporates the forging, extruding and upsetting process. It is often performed in the cold state, resulting in cold working. This process typically produces a near net shape workpiece, which means the final product is almost finished although it can sometimes create the final product less Plating or Heat Treating.
  2. Heading is a term used in navigation that refers to the direction a vehicle is pointing. This may or may not be the direction that the vehicle actually travels, which is known as its course or track. Any difference between course and heading is due to the motion of the underlying medium, the air or water, or other effects like skidding or slipping. The difference between heading and course is known as drift, and can be determined by the navigational triangle.
