To ensure the best quality of our machines and satisfaction from our customers the machine is review at FAT (Factory acceptance testing) before shipping. This is a major project milestone where it is demonstrated that the system design and manufacturing meets the contract specifications. The FAT must be conducted formally and be witnessed by the system owner and/or project manager, with a formal record of discrepancies and non conformities and how they are to be handled.
After the machinery has been shipped a SAT (Site Acceptance Test) is made to ensure that the system is working in accordance to client approved test plans and specifications. This to show that the system is installed properly and that interfaces with other systems fits as well as the machine fits in its working environment.
