How do we manage a typical Electrical Panel Builder Project?

Project management automation systems

Project Engagement

Phoenix is a certified electrical panel builder with vast experience. We focus on the company’s needs and objectives for your Industrial automation system’s requirements:

  • Provide guidance through every stage until the completion of the project.
  • Consider every detail of your requirements such as building size, space required for the new industrial automation systems, integration with the existing equipment, workpiece specifications, production times, and more.
  • Perform a full site inspection and discuss all details with the customer to prepare a functional design specification (FDS) document.

An Electrical Panel Builder Prepares a Tender Document

We plan and design the automation around your product and operational requirements.

  • We look at your current process with a view to cost reduction and production requirements.
  • Prepare a tender document that describes in detail all the elements of your project: reference documents, our scope, planning schedule, and a breakdown of all the costs along with payment terms and conditions.
  • We consider the specifications of the mechanical and electrical systems. We prepare a comprehensive test schedule and agree on the steps for the commissioning period.

Quotation

At the initial quotation, we will meet with all providers, to ensure that all equipment meets all standards of the industrial automation requirements.

  • A detailed quotation will be prepared to include the specification of the electrical or mechanical components specific to the project.
  • The tender document will include a full project description.
  • A full production test schedule will also be outlined for the completion of the commissioning phase to ensure that the system is achieving the production criteria.

Electrical Panel Builder Design, Testing & Manufacture

We assign a Project Manager to the project to ensure a clear line of communication from design through to commissioning.

  • The Project Manager checks all information prior to commencement of manufacture and produces the functional design specification to lead the following design stages.
  • Our designers produce the Electrical panel wiring diagram and mechanical drawings using Eplan and Autocad for passing into manufacture. We write and pre-test the software whilst the manufacturing process is taking place to keep the onsite commissioning time to a minimum.
  • We establish a technical liaison with other equipment suppliers during this stage with regard to interfacing with our system.

Installation and Commissioning

The Project Manager ensures that every element of the project is undertaken on time during the installation of the Industrial automation systems:

  • Our Project Manager constantly monitors the Installation phase by the site A detailed quotation will include a specification of the electrical or mechanical components specific to the project.
  • We will follow strict Health and Safety standards and regulations during the installation and we will discuss and implement any safety requirements specific to your site.
  • The commissioning of the installation will include a full production test ensuring that the system meets the agreed availability criteria.
  • Once the commissioning phase is complete, we can provide full training on both the control system, robot automation, and any manufacturer-specific training.

Documentation electrical control panels

Electrical Control System Documentation

We will provide a full documentation pack at the completion of the project.  Therefore, it will include.

  • Complete set of schematics and layout drawings in pdf form.
  • The FDS in pdf form.
  • Parts list in pdf form.
  • Manufacturers documentation.
  • Complete test schedule
  • Where relevant complete training documentation.
  • Archives of the Industrial Robot or/and PLC programs.
  • A detailed document for the robot automation, if necessary.
