What's Inside

Factory Acceptance Testing

Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) is used to confirm that each unit meets specifications before being shipped from the manufacturer’s site.

Site Acceptance Testing

Site Acceptance Testing (SAT) is like FAT and ensures that, once delivered and installed/integrated, the EDS equipment is still performing according to specifications.

Integrated Site Acceptance Testing

Integrated Site Acceptance Testing (iSAT) is separate testing conducted to ensure that EDS equipment integrated into a baggage handling system (BHS) works properly with the BHS.
