Factory Acceptance Testing
Factory Acceptance Test (FAT)
IMS exceeds industry standards by use of custom engineered simulation software. The Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) verifies proper operation of all system functions using an approved test plan. All equipment is staged, runs concurrently, or is simulated for a complete test of the entire system. Each drive in the system test has its own motor simulator based on a mathematical model.
Customer operators and the commissioning team are integrated into the factory test for training. The simulation software can also remain as part of the system for on-site use.
The following major areas are addressed during the FAT:
