Project Commissioning – Part 1

OK, so you are getting close to the finish line – almost done with your project development. You may running on schedule or rushing to meet the deadline, but it is still no time to let lack of project management lead to unnecessary and costly mistakes.

FAT and Happy

Make sure that you perform a thorough Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) as defined by your V-diagram process to validate that your system meets all of the specified requirements. Involve the customer if possible. But, regardless, there should be a formal sign-off sheet with initials by each met specification. Some Alliance Partners even have a formal approval process before the system can be shipped.

In Ship Shape?

While being FAT is good, you still want to be in ship shape. So, take steps to avoid errors and delays. Have you checked to see if your labeling meets any requirements that your customer must have? Do you have a way to verify the complete shipment (e.g. pack slips)? Do you have insurance guidelines for shipments?
