Quality at many critical facilities today tends to be a rule book, which is too often followed mindlessly without full understanding of the systems and client needs. At the same time, there also seems to be an underlying belief that if the designers put the design on paper, and the contractors build it, everything will work. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.
At Miller Engineering Information Technologies Group Inc., quality is not static; it is a philosophy, which is deeply ingrained in our company. Our designs are being constantly defined, reviewed, and tailored to the specific needs of our clients to ensure the highest quality. We are present at acceptance testing to ensure that the quality designed into the system and constructed in the field is tested, and that no details have been left unchecked.
In order to achieve a quality product fulfilling the client's needs, a commissioning process should be implemented and become an integral part of an installation. The intention of this process is to bring the project (systems) from a state of static completion to a state of dynamic operation, meeting the design intent.
There are five major phases to successful commissioning projects:
After acceptance, we are available during the operational life of the facility to support the operations staff in maintaining the high reliability designed into the system, including:
- Developing maintenance procedures and matrices
- Periodic site inspections
- Testing of equipment
