Systems integration is unique because it is more of a process than a series of checklists. Once you understand this concept, you will have a better understanding on how to approach it… In the end, having the hardware and software operate as an entity and perform the way the customer expects it to perform is the essence of systems integration.
A hardware problem that exists undiscovered at the time of systems programming and checkout can cost you double, or even triple. Plus, you have one angry programmer who wonders why the system and equipment has not been properly checked prior to his task.
The primary objective of cable and test verification at this time of the installation is to determine if all the cable required to complete the installation has been installed, is installed correctly and that no significant damage has been incurred by the installers or other trades at the construction site prior making all terminations.
This article will guide you in preparing for and completing procedures that will systematically and methodically take you through a sequence of tasks purposed to insure the integrity of the wiring prior to a complete systems test and integration process.
Without proper documentation, installation or wiring errors result. This potentially can slow down the entire process significantly. Another important issue is that errors created during the first phases of an installation are subject to what is termed compounding. Compounding results when an issue that exists earlier in the project is not discovered or a resolution is postponed until later.
