|design freeze||The design freeze completes the design – the design has been examined and approved by the customer. Only then the purchasing process may commence.
In order to optimize/save project time, the design freeze may also take place in partial sections (for individual systems/plants/machines or assemblies).|
The following features/criteria will be examined:
|DIB, dib||device interface board|
|DMC||data matrix code|
|DUT||device under test|
|ECM||engineering change management|
|EIS||equipment identifying symbol|
|EOAT||end of arm tooling|
|EPO||emergency power off|
|ERP system||enterprise resource planning system|
|FAI||first article inspection|
|FAT||factory acceptance test ::: The FAT is a functional test of the system/plant/machine at esmo AG together with the customer. The objective is the early detection of critical faults in the system/plant/machine prior to delivery. The successfully passed FAT will be the prerequisite for the delivery release of the system/plant/machine, and the subsequent issuance of the third partial invoice.|
The detailed functional scope of this test will be precisely defined in advance upon order placement – it will furthermore depend on the general testing and inspection possibilities of the system/plant/machine at esmo AG.

|OEE||overall equipment effectiveness ::: The OEE indicator – combining parameter availability, performance and quality – will constitute the basis for the acceptance of the system/plant/machine. The following chart depicts the calculation of the OEE:|
The term "performance efficiency" is defined as the ratio between the theoretical output and the quantity actually produced, including bad/reject parts. The theoretical output will be calculated by multiplying the declared or stated power of the system/plant/machine by its actual operating time.
The term "quality factor" is defined as the ratio between the good products and all manufactured products
The system/plant/machine shall have satisfied all quality criteria of the products to be manufactured prior to the test. Any system/plant/machine, manufacturing inferior quality products, may not be tested.

|SAT||site acceptance test ::: The SAT is a functional test of the system/plant/machine at the customer site after assembly/installation and commissioning.
It should show and prove the proper installation and functionality of all safety devices.
Additionally, the system/plant/machine must have already fulfilled all defined customer safety check specifications and further requirements.
The control program is available and the system/plant/machine is ready for operation.
The system/plant/machine shall prove and meet all performance data and reliability requirements in a defined endurance test during SAT. All operators and service staff are trained.
After passing the SAT, the system/plant/machine may be used for production. Effective the date/time of the successfully passed SAT, the warranty period will commence, and the area of responsibility for the system/plant/machine will be transferred to the customer.
The detailed functional scope of this test will be precisely defined in advance upon order placement. After successfully passing the SAT, the system/plant/machine may be used for production – all system/plant/machine-related documentation will be submitted/handed over to the customer:
|SCCR||short circuit current rating|
|SD card||secure digital memory card|
|SOP||standard operating procedure|
|STH||small test head|
|UL marks, UL labels||Underwriters Laboratories marks/labels|
|WAF||width across flats (wrench size)|
