German term or phrase: Technikrundgang
"Während der Kultivierung der von der vorliegenden Abweichung betroffenen Charge 123 wurde bei einem Technikrundgang ein Austritt von Flüssigkeit aus dem Ventil ABC vor dem Kondensatableiter der Temperiereinheit der Pertussis Fermenters 456 festgestellt."

From a vaccine manufacturer's deviation report. I can't find a translation for Technikrundgang anywhere and really have no idea what it means. TIA for any light you can shed on this strange word.

Many thanks Steffen and the peer graders. I was reasonably sure about the "Rundgang" part of the word, but the use of "Technik" confused me, as it frequently does. Thanks again - appreciate your help.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Jaime Hyland: "plant inspection tour" perhaps, to accent the fact that we're talking about an inspection walkabout, and not just the inspection of a single system or piece of plant.
12 mins
  -> Yes, that's a good point.

agree  INES Reisch: como Jaime "plant inspection tour"
3 hrs
  -> ... or "inspection visit".

agree  philgoddard: I don't think "tour" or "visit" add anything to the sentence.
5 hrs
