The simplest way to say is:

a operator can be projected on another one, for example, The orbital angular momentum cab be projected on the total angular momentum.

a simple application is on the Zeeman effect on spin-orbital coupling. the Hamiltonian is:

by the Wigner-Eckart theorem:

then the Hamiltonian becomes:

and introduce the Bohr Magneton and g-factor:
