Service Snippets is a new FCG publication focused on helping members get the most of FCG products, especially Test and Registration. Each issue will feature a specific topic, occasionally addressed in a humorous way. We hope you find these informative and please feel free to suggest new topics. 

Does Anybody Really Know What T&R Time Is?

In 1969, even before HART was created, the band Chicago wrote a song  "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?",  which eventually became a Top 10 single in the U.S.A. It's a great song, and there's a  link at the end of this issue where you can listen to it.

Regarding device, DD, and FDI device package testing and registration (T&R), members often wonder how long it really takes. We've culled through a lot of information and are now in a position to deliver a Test Performance Summary Report at the conclusion of a test campaign.

Shown below, the report summarizes total campaign duration (Blue), and active time at FieldComm Group (Gold).  Breakout times for each test type are indicated along with time waiting for responses from members and collection time to gather documents required to start the campaign. 

We will shortly begin attaching these reports, beginning with campaigns completed in the Austin lab, after each campaign is formally closed, and hope that you find it informative.
