OUR Equipment Life Cycle Management
Stage 1: Planning
The lack of comprehensive planning will result in wastage of resource, reduced operational efficiency and lower product quality. So, at the earliest stage of equipment set-up, NICA will conduct a series of technical discussions, including equipment specification, expected productivity, floor space constraint, product characteristics, and equipment budget.
Stage 2： Designing
This is an extensive and exhaustive stage because it involves not only the degree but also a wide range of technical knowledge. Prior to fabrication, multiple rounds of technical discussions will be held. Equipment specification, drawing and quotation will be provided to the customer for approval after all technical related issues have been clarified.
Stage 3: Installation, Commissioning and Delivery
To shorten the assembly time at customer site, equipment installation and commissioning will be pre-conducted at our factory site. Afterwards, equipment will be packed and delivered to the customer site. Both FAT (factory acceptance test) and SAT (site acceptance test) will be fully executed to ensure customer’s requirements are fully met.
Stage 4: Commence of production
In order to maintain equipment in good running condition, a maintenance plan will be proposed beforehand. Furthermore, local and remote monitoring will be performed.
Stage 5: Stable Operation
Upon request by our customer, services of periodical inspection, equipment diagnosis, and energy consumption level diagnosis are available.
Stage 6: Extension of operational life
NICA also provides operational life diagnosis, retrofit work and renewal work, and equipment reliability to extend the service life of aged equipment from the viewpoint of minimizing lifecycle costs.
Stage 7: Renewal plan
As the equipment reaches its lifespan, we will assist our customers to work out a feasible renewal plan to suit their needs and to ensure a rewarding investment.
Stage 8: Disposal
We will assist our customers in equipment disposal upon request.
