Typically, your role in implementation is limited to
- monitoring the progress
- facilitating access to the sites where work needs to be done
- preparing for the next steps via, detailed migration planning, subscriber fleet planning and training
It is not necessary to monitor all installation and commissioning activities. However, many system buyers delegate some of their own technical resources to participate, as they provide an excellent opportunity for hands-on training. If you wish to do so, ask for the necessary provision in advance, preferably in the RFP.
Formal progress monitoring is typically accomplished via regular communications from the vendor, usually structured meetings or conferences with formal progress reports. Agree the format, contents and frequency of progress reports in advance.
