Preliminary Evaluations are the first step in the full evaluation process. They are typically pulled out front as a separate project and include design and documentation reviews. The goal is to identify and address compliance issues and determine the full project plan. They consist of 1 day at the client’s facility or at MECA (travel expenses are an additional cost, if done at client’s facility). To greatly reduce the full evaluation project time, we strongly suggest considering a Preliminary Evaluation as the first step.
