Test & Evaluation
The last thing our customers want to discover is that equipment/systems will not meet the requirements of the job. The problem is the information that is provided by manufacturers about their products is derived from tests performed by the manufacturers in a lab setting. Although the equipment is tested before it hits the market, the overall safety, quality, reliability, and maintainability of the equipment in field environments may be significantly impacted as each equipment item functions as part of an operational system. Our customers must have an independent, unbiased, non-profit clearinghouse to obtain reliable information concerning the operation of individual equipment items and how those items work together as a system.
TCAT provides high quality, impartial, operationally relevant evaluations/validations of critical equipment and systems. The results are provided to the customer in an operationally useful form. We assess and validate various systems identified by our customer as being instrumental in their ability to perform their jobs. When armed with reliable information regarding equipment performance, our customers can allocate funds more wisely and, at the same time, ensure the equipment will perform as needed.
