A Systematic Approach
Craig Hawkins, CxA
sys⋅tem⋅at⋅ic [sis-tuh-mat-ik] – adjective
A “systematic approach” simply means to develop an organized plan before the project has started. Know (before you start):
O & M’s
Manufacturer’s installation, operation and maintenance information for each component.
Organized by CSI number as determined by the Engineer of Record during the design phase of the project.
May not always be first generation material (copies, sometimes copies of faxes).
No information on control points, sequence of operation, distribution systems and any other “system” information.
