Component Testing

Commercialization Process: Component Testing


Component Testing refers to designing and conducting tests to verify that the technology works and performs as is intended. Component Testing ranges from the most basic, to confirm the functionality, to more complex activities to ensure that components meet technical and regulatory standards. It is again important to understand the relevant regulatory bodies for the technology to ensure the right tests are completed.

How this Milestone Reduces Project Risk

Proper testing of technology components allows redesign/re-engineering early in the process and minimizes losses, in both capital and time.

What to consider at this time

What are the relevant regulatory bodies and industrial standards for the technology? What components will need to be tested? What functions and standards must be performed? How will you test them?

Ready to get started?

In this module you will learn how to:

  • Test whether the technology works as it should and is safe for the user.
  • Address regulatory specifications for each component of the design.
Component Testing Guide

After identifying relevant standard and regulatory guidance in the Technology Review and Regulatory Strategy modules, use this guide to create a comprehensive list of regulatory requirements that must be met.
