The final step of systems integration is commissioning. Commissioning should include both the hardware and software. All of the hardware should be physically inspected for correct installation and the wiring tested for continuity. Inputs should be checked for accuracy against a standard. The operation of all outputs should be demonstrated from the operator interface personal computer or system controller if no personal computer is installed. This inspection should not be taken lightly. The system will not function as designed if any hardware component is incorrectly installed or does not function as desired.

The software should be checked before the system is put on the line. This requires a careful review of all algorithms, setpoints and schedules for compliance with the detailed specifications.

APPENDIX B "EMCS Installation Requirements" provides the basic parameters to formalize specifications to bid the installation of a DDC EMCS. Commissioning procedures are detailed in sections B15, B16 and B17.
