As the name suggests, FAT - Factory Acceptance Test - is normally performed at the manufacturer’s site. A factory visit and test give the customer the opportunity to verify that the equipment is built and operating in accordance with their tender requirements and design specifications.
During the global pandemic travel has not been possible and the effects will continue to cause challenges for our customers for some time to come. This has meant we have had come up with another solution. This is how the concept of the E-FAT was born.
Thanks to the latest technology, such as remote access via web-based platforms, customers can see the different tests being performed, as well as interact from a distance. Remote FAT is a smart alternative, reducing the time required for staff to be away from the office and the associated costs (travel, accommodation, etc).
