Start-up and

Project Commissioning



Project start-up and Commissioning is an exacting and complicated business, so attending to all the details and staying on schedule is no easy task.

Developing a structured and predictable commissioning process though, can go a long way towards helping. A very long way, in fact.

At FTQ360, we understand the challenges of managing and controlling commissioning of projects, documenting inspections, technical tests, performance data, and your need to hold multiple teams accountable for their part -every single day. You also need to do all of this in a way that resolves deficiencies and ultimately proves compliance to customers, regulators and litigants. And that isn’t always easy.

But if you are serious about a commissioning platform that improves and streamlines your commissioning process, we can help.

CX Commissioning


Start with the end in mind.

We get it, nobody likes project closeout – too much documentation when you could be moving to the next project. FTQ360 collects reports and documents in an organized way throughout the commissioning process so you are always ready for a quick and easy closeout. Create a complete and up to the minute handover package by outputting reports in PDF format and downloading related documents. It doesn’t get any simpler.

  • All inspections and tests you perform on the FTQ360 platform are automatically formatted and organized into a turnover package
  • Include operational documents and manuals uploaded throughout the commissioning process and stored on the FTQ360 servers
  • A final commissioning report shows the inspections, tests and reports completed for each piece of equipment and subsystem
  • Turnover packages prepared in a searchable PDF format so easy for the owner to continue with operation and maintenance of the new facilities

FTQ360 as the single source for generating handover documents vastly simplifies handover to the client.

Save months of work organizing information while setting the client’s operating team up for the best chance of success.

Commissioning- System Handover


Ensure an organized and safe startup with properly planned/tracked activities.

When you’re serious about commissioning, the upfront planning of inspections and tests for specific equipment and systems - and then keeping the process on track – becomes a business imperative. With the FTQ360 Software Platform, it’s baked right into the process.

  • Define your commissioning sequence for each piece of equipment, subsystem and system
  • See the schedule composite timeline in the office and in the field
  • As inspections and tests are completed, they automatically post, showing completion status of the commissioning plan in real-time
  • Know which activities are on-time, forecast delayed activities that could impact commissioning and startup and take proactive steps to maintain your in-service date
  • Import/export schedules for integration with P6 or MS Project

Replace multiple apps on PCs with a single-solution platform shared by the whole team.

Keep your commissioning process on track and address project-specific needs with professional-grade planning and integrated tracking.

Commissioning - Safe Startup


Serious commissioning inspections start with checklist templates, so having your own library of checklists is indispensable. The FTQ360 Software Platform comes with a suite of mechanical and electrical checklists ready for you to use and adapt to your project.

Serious benefits:
  • Create your startup and commissioning checklists using our industry standard templates, fully customizable to your project’s needs, or import yours
  • Record test data and repetitive measurements directly on the FTQ360 platform, eliminating the need for spreadsheets
  • HD photos seamlessly integrated into every checklist with time and GPS stamps
  • Set Pass/Fail criteria and calculations so technicians have immediate feedback to start troubleshooting immediately
  • Document deficiencies on any checkpoint
  • Report approvals with multiple sign-off signatures
  • Over twenty specialized checkpoint formats to handle any type of information you need to capture
  • Automatically generate reports for each subsystem

Take advantage of digital technology to replace your paper or spreadsheet checklists with game-changing features and ease of use.

Fast and easy issue communication and control.

If you’re serious about commissioning quality, then efficient communication of issues in a managed process from discovery to resolution is a great place to start. Here’s what the FTQ360 Software Platform can do for you.

  • Seamless documentation of deficiencies through all phases of your project – FAT, Construction, Commissioning, Closeout right on the inspection screen
  • Categorize deficiencies by priority, and reason code, and assign them to the group/individual that is responsible to rectify each item
  • Deficiency due dates are linked to the overall commissioning schedule so you know when each deficiency must be rectified to stay on schedule
  • All deficiencies stored on the FTQ360 platform for visibility to all stakeholders
  • Reporting corrections then documents their completion and removes them from the list of open issues. Inspections can pass only when all related issues are resolved
  • Formal non-conformance process for disposition of critical deficiencies
  • Automatic generation of open issue reports and reminders

No more separate Excel sheets and emails. Track all your deficiencies in one place.

Stay on top of your deficiencies by eliminating unnecessary steps and automating key tasks.

Commissioning Deficiency Tracking


Equipment, sub-systems, and systems are at the heart of a Cx process.

FTQ360 ties all tests and inspections to specific equipment tags, sub-systems and ultimately the overall system with these features:

  • All equipment tags, subsystems, and systems are uniquely identified and listed in one location
  • Scheduling focuses on equipment and the required sequence of inspections and tests. Systems too
  • All commissioning reports and deliverables are tracked to specific equipment and system identifiers
  • Upload equipment and systems operating manuals, documents, as-built, and other documents for inclusion in each handover package
  • Clearly defined client handovers for each piece of equipment and system

The FTQ360 commissioning platform integrates equipment and systems into every aspect of the commissioning process.

Commissioning Equipment and Systems


A managed approach to data accuracy and security.

Ensuring inspection and test data are managed properly is a serious business – collecting the data, verifying details, and presenting easy-to-read inspection reports with and proof-positive compliance documentation can really help. The FTQ360 Software Platform includes a full range of reporting features to keep you in control.

  • Upload supporting documents, test reports, scans, and files to any inspection or test including O&M manuals, red-line and as-built drawings, SOPs, and SWPs
  • Security controls allow external parties limited access to perform inspections and tests
  • Professional grade reports are automatically formatted by FTQ360
  • Every inspection checkpoint and piece of test data is recorded in the FTQ360 database in real time with detailed activity logs
  • Automatic backup to your designated repository

Replace your filing system with a database approach that is far more accessible, secure, and reliable.
