OUR COMMISSION PROCESS
If APS are involved in the commissioning process then this phase happens after the design, build and
installation is complete. Also any safety concerns can be discussed at this point. This will involve a
safety hazard analysis of the commissioning process to ensure minimal risk to personnel and
The first part of the process is to test the functionality of the hardware. This may involve testing thedrives can move into position or can run at a particular speed. This is performed with the mechanics uncoupled until complete control over the system is established.
Once the functionality is checked APS will work with the customer to make the machine perform at
the required level. This combines the customers expertise with the expertise and experience of the
Once commissioning is finished then the machine is fully tested both functionally and from a safety
perspective. Any non-conformities are normally detected here and the machine can be passed fit to beput into production or delivered to the customer.
