MAVERICK Technologies Announces Breakthrough Digital Commissioning Tool to Increase Efficiency and Transparency

MAVERICK Technologies, a Rockwell Automation company, has announced the release of eStart℠, a groundbreaking new app that keeps projects
on track by making commissioning more efficient and transparent than ever. When
outage windows become condensed, even the slightest inaccuracies in project
tracking can have a major impact. MAVERICK is responding to these challenges with
At the beginning of a startup and commissioning project, MAVERICK
uses eStart to digitally gather data and create loop folders to house all
relevant instrument data and checksheets. Digital folder creation not only
greatly reduces documentation time, but also keeps all electronic data at the
technicians’ fingertips, anywhere they are. In addition, eStart’s Near Me
feature uses GPS technology to locate nearby instruments and identify which
stage of commissioning they are in, to make loop shooting more efficient. 
“Loop shooting and documentation can eat up a lot of time,”
says Consultant Mark McMakin. “With eStart, loop-shooting time is reduced by up
to 10% and documentation time is reduced by up to 30%, ensuring a more
efficient workflow.” 
eStart also offers customers greater visibility into their
commissioning projects. Every time a step is completed, the app automatically
records the technician’s name, date and time stamp, giving customers real-time
updates so they always know how close the project is to completion. This way,
if the schedule slips, customers can proactively make adjustments to get back
on track.
The breakthrough eStart app is a fully integrated feature of
MAVERICK’s proven SureStart solution for startup and commissioning. With
SureStart, MAVERICK construction managers, technicians and electricians work in
parallel with construction efforts to minimize downtime, enhance reliability
and finish ahead of schedule. The result is faster and safer startups.
