A factory acceptance test (FAT) is critical to verifying capital equipment operability prior to leaving the supplier’s factory.  Unfortunately, FATs are often overlooked or under developed in the early stages of a project.  This leads to unnecessary costs, delays and difficulties in the latter stages of the project.  This webinar will discuss the value and application of the OpX Leadership Network’s FAT work product through real-world examples.
 
In this webinar you will learn:

  • What tools the OpX Leadership Network has developed for defining and managing factory acceptance tests.
  • How these tools have been applied, and the benefits seen by a large consumer packaged goods company.
  • The value of defining the FAT in the early stages of a project as experienced by an equipment manufacturer.
