“Hargrove's expertise with DeltaV and batch control was particularly valuable to us. They also did an excellent job with the panels they built for us; that went seamlessly. I would definitely recommend Hargrove. Beyond technical proficiency, in my opinion, it is all about the people. Hargrove’s Team takes personal responsibility for a project’s success, and most importantly, they react quickly to resolve any issues.”
The success of automation projects performing as you intended requires a comprehensive Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) to take place prior to installation and commissioning. A FAT is a complete testing of the software and hardware that validates the engineers programming your system have hit the mark to meet your expectations. This is also your opportunity to catch something you may have overlooked in the planning phase of your project. Modifications and adjustment are much easier and less costly in terms of downtime to make before you are in start-up mode at your plant. Depending on the size of the project a FAT can take a few hours to a week or more.
A FAT can be a fully integrated test of hardware and software or can be just a verification of the software.
From helping operators adapt to an upgraded control system to getting your whole team on the same page with new Safety or Cybersecurity policies, all training is developed by our Teammates with your team in mind. Whenever possible, Hargrove conducts training sessions using the actual equipment or code that is in your facility. As a critical piece of project handoff, robust training allows the system to work as intended from day one without the hiccups caused by a learning curve. Trainees leave with practical, hands-on experience that they can apply the next day.
When needed, our Teammates build simulations so the system looks and runs exactly like it will in the real facility. The training can occur prior to commissioning, so that your operators can run production flawlessly. Often, this takes place in conjunction with our Factory Acceptance Test.
Our operator training sessions are tailored to the access rights and responsibilities given at each facility. We want to make sure that your team has everything they need so that any system upgrade can be fully implemented as intended.
It is always our goal that when we walk off site at project completion, your in-house team is fully confident and comfortable running the system.
We can arrange training at your facility and provide multiple sessions so that each work shift can be trained without disrupting schedules. Hargrove can host trainings at any of our convenient office locations or other offsite facilities. Remote offerings or hybrid offerings provide options to your team based on your specific needs.
For custom training development, we offer several options:
With Hargrove, you get the right experience from the right people in system integration working alongside you to meet and exceed your expectations. Working together as One Team – that’s Hargrove.
