Where is an FAT performed?

All inspections and testing are done at the vendor’s location, usually on the shop floor so that when/if issues arise they are in an area that is convenient for modifications to be made to the equipment. Since the purpose of an FAT is to qualify the equipment prior to shipment, it should never be conducted at the customer’s facility.
