Testing and Commissioning

Once static checks have been completed, internal tests are conducted by DCI to demonstrate that the system operates as specified by the contract documents.

If system complexity warrants, DCI will develop and issue an Acceptance Test Plan. Once the internal tests are complete and adjustments are made, DCI will conduct a formal acceptance test with customer-supplied product and personnel. Any criteria found to be nonconforming will be corrected and retested as quickly as possible. When the system has been demonstrated to be in compliance with the contract documents, testing is considered successfully completed and the system is turned over for use.
