Operational Performance Verification – OPV™

Once your system is online and Verification performed to assure operation meets Design Specs, Pro-MEC’s Operational Performance Verification (OPV™) program helps maintain the efficiency and effectiveness of your equipment. Our OPV™ keeps it performing within your real-world requirements, with the attempt at lowering O&M costs and extending life. We find often that real-world requirements change by a project’s completion from the Design Requirements established at the outset.

Operational Performance Verification OPV™ is the only way to document that the complete integrated operational system meets owner’s performance requirements and the basis of design (BOD as interpreted by the design team) has been successfully implemented, and continues to be valid as time goes by.

OPV™ is a sustained PM process

OPV™ is NOT a 1-time activity. It should be part of your Equipment/Facility PM – because buildings change over time and so do the demands placed on them. See also Continuous Commissioning.
