In most industrial sectors such as chemical, automotive, power, metallurgical or oil & gas, large construction projects involve the purchase of vast number of Electrical & Instrumentation items supplied by many different manufacturers.
Quality and safety is key for these projects. So it is of vital importance to check the quality of every single item, no matter how small. These items range from raw material to finished products. As some indication of the diversity of items concerned, they can include cables, heavy-duty motors, transformers and automation products. Any purchase carries embedded risk. If a part is faulty, but the fault is not detected, the risk of something going wrong becomes embedded within the new asset.
Shop Inspection involves inspecting item at their place of manufacture before delivery. This is the most convenient and cost-effective way to determine whether a product, service, process, piece of equipment or installation complies with expressed needs, customer expectations, applicable regulations or other specific requirements. Shop inspection can include design review, review of material certificates, visual inspection, attendance, supervision of performance of mechanical or functions tests and Factory Acceptance Test.
