Factory Acceptance Tests

A factory acceptance test of new equipment is vital to a successful start-up of that equipment when it gets to your facility.
Don’t be tempted to skip the FAT, it is one the most important; if not the most important steps of the commissioning and validation process for a new production line.
Performing the acceptance test at the vendor’s facility is preferable for several reasons:

  • Easier and cheaper for the vendor to make corrections, modifications, or fix problems. They have all of their personnel, equipment, and supplies on hand to work with.
  • If the equipment is not going to meet specifications, you have the chance to reject it in entirety, and not have to deal with uninstalling equipment that isn’t going to work.
  • Knowing that the equipment was fully checked out and validated prior to shipment aids in the start-up process by eliminating a source of problems
  • Payment terms can be aligned with FAT success, so that you only pay the vendor when the equipment is successfully tested
