System Commissioning

The commissioning of an AV system at the final stages of a project is a critical phase, yet it's not always done, according to this month's MarketWatch survey conducted by ProAV magazine and InfoComm International.

The commissioning of an AV system at the final stages of a project is a critical phase, yet it's not always done, according to this month's MarketWatch survey conducted by ProAV magazine and InfoComm International. A formal commissioning process may be more relevant for larger projects that include many subsystems to be used by multiple users. But when a commissioning procedure is conducted, it's a fairly comprehensive one; the vast majority (89 percent) of respondents said their process of commissioning includes verification of delivery of all components, proper installation, and function, as well as training for the end-users.

One of the more interesting findings was that commissioning is the sole responsibility of the AV systems integrator, with little or no involvement of AV consultants. Another solid finding is the importance of end-user training as part of the commissioning process. About 86 percent of respondents typically include training; the only reason it is not 100 percent is most likely because some small projects simply may not warrant it.
