A commissioning plan is a document that outlines the process of ensuring that a building or system is functioning properly and efficiently before it is put into operation. This plan typically includes a series of tests, inspections, and other activities that are designed to verify that all components of the building or system are installed and operating correctly, and that they are meeting the required performance standards.

Commissioning plans are vital in ensuring that complex systems and facilities operate safely, efficiently, and effectively. A well-executed commissioning plan can help manufacturing and mission critical facilities avoid costly delays, minimize risk, and reduce long-term operating costs. However, designing and implementing a successful commissioning plan is a complex process that requires careful planning, technical expertise, and attention to detail.

In this article, we provide a step-by-step guide to commissioning plans, including the critical role that LotusWorks’ commissioning experts play in ensuring that client facilities operate as per design intent.

Commissioning Plan, Step 1: 

The first step in the commissioning plan is the Design Review. This involves reviewing the engineering design and specifications to ensure they meet the project requirements and industry standards. The Design Review also includes evaluating the design for constructability, operability, maintainability, and reliability.

Some of the key activities involved in Design Review include:

  • Reviewing design drawings, specifications, and calculations
  • Evaluating the equipment and system selection
  • Analyzing the design for efficiency and reliability
  • Identifying potential risks and hazards
  • Preparing a design review report
  • Reviewing for compliance between the Owner’s Project Requirements record, the Basis of Design Record and the construction design documents.

LotusWorks’ commissioning experts play a crucial role in the Design Review process by providing technical expertise and guidance to ensure the design meets the project requirements and industry standards.

Commissioning Plan Step 2: Factory Acceptance testing

Stage 2 of the commissioning plan involves verifying that the equipment and systems meet the design specifications and requirements at the source location. This step involves inspecting the equipment, testing it under simulated conditions, and ensuring that it meets the acceptance criteria before being shipped to site.

Some of the key activities involved in the Factory Acceptance Testing Stage include:

  • Inspecting and testing the equipment
  • Verifying that the equipment meets the design specifications and requirements
  • Conducting performance tests
  • Preparing a factory acceptance report
  • Lotusworks’ commissioning  experts can provide valuable technical expertise in the Factory stage, ensuring that the equipment and systems are tested and verified to meet the design specifications and requirements

Step 4: Start-Up and Pre-Functional Tests

The Start-Up and Pre-Functional Tests stage involves testing the equipment and systems to ensure they are ready for initial energization and operation. This step involves testing individual components and subsystems to ensure they function correctly and can operate together.

Some of the key activities involved in the Start-Up and Pre Functional Tests stage include:

  • Testing the equipment and systems to ensure that they are safe
  • Conducting pre-functional tests to ensure that the equipment and systems can operate together as a system
  • Preparing a start-up and pre-functional test report

Step 5: Functional Tests

The Functional Tests stage involves testing the equipment and systems to ensure they meet the project requirements and perform as intended. This step involves testing the equipment and systems under real operating conditions.

Some of the key activities involved in the Functional Tests stage include:

  • Conducting functional tests to ensure that the equipment and systems meet the project requirements and perform as intended and with other systems
  • Identifying any deficiencies or issues and addressing them
  • Preparing a functional test report

Lotusworks’ commissioning experts provide valuable technical expertise in the Functional Tests stage, ensuring that the equipment and systems meet the project requirements and perform as intended.

Step 6: Integrated Testing

The Functional Tests stage involves testing the equipment and systems to ensure they meet the project requirements and perform as intended. This step involves testing the equipment and systems under real operating conditions.

  • Testing the entire system as a whole to ensure that it performs as intended and meets the project requirements.
  • Identifying any deficiencies or issues and addressing them
  • Preparing an integrated testing report
