Turn-key solutions

For each project Gematica can perform all the phases needed to realized a turn key solution.

Design

The first phase of the project process is the Design. In this phase Gematica produces all the preliminary and detailed documentation required by the project, including:

  • Requirements Traceability Matrix;
  • Technical specification;
  • Interface specification;
  • Project Management Plan;
  • Configuration Management plan;
  • Construction quality control plan;
  • EMI/EMC plan and Dossier;
  • Quality and Safety plan;
  • RAMS plan and analysis;
  • Training and Maintenance manuals;
  • Radio Coverage plan and report;
  • IP addressing;
  • as built;
  • and others

During the design all the drawings and documentation required are also produced as input for engineering installation department like: combined layouts, main cable ways design, installation design etc.

Factory Tests

Gematica manages all the activities needed for the preparation and execution of the Factory Acceptance Tests (FAT) and Factory Integration Tests (FIT) with the presence of the customer.

The objective of FAT is to demonstrate the correct functionality and compliance of the subsystem with the contract requirements and the applicable standards. FAT includes the following steps:

  • Functional Tests: check of the main functionalities on a subset of the system
  • Hardware Test: check of the hardware completeness based on the design baseline

The objective of FIT is to test in the factory all the integrated functionalities between the TLC subsystems in compliance with the contract requirements and subsystem requirements.

Installation supervision & commissioning

Gematica supervises the correct installation of the subsystem with inspections on site and adequate training to the installation company.

After and in parallel of the installation supervision Gematica performs for each site of the System (i.e control center, depot, stations, vehicles, service vehicles) all the activities to guarantee that all equipment operates in accordance with the approved design documents and are ready for commercial service.

This phase ends with a formal acceptance tests conducted in the real environment (SAT and SIT) to verify the real performance and functionality of the systems as well as to validate the systems with the customer.

Trial run & Maintenance

In this phase Gematica:

  • train the maintenance staff and the Operators for the O&M with adequate training documentation and courses.
  • support the O&M staff during the pre-revenue service without passengers;
  • maintain (if requested) the system provided during the revenue service.
