> Functional Specification Development
Equipment and systems that fail to meet critical production requirements can contribute to subpar performance, high operating costs, and quality issues. The root of the problem is often the lack of clearly defined functional requirements and measurable performance criteria. To help prevent this, Cogent can work with you to develop a comprehensive functional specification that captures your specific reliability, maintainability and availability expectations and outlines the FAT and SAT criteria that must be met to ensure that the design and manufacture of your asset follows best practices and meets the functional requirements of your process.
