Business dictionary gives "job card invoice" for "fattura a consuntivo", but this may be a Britishism and unclear to Americans

Explanation:
The accounting term doesn't apply here, in the context of technical assistance with the experimental operation of the plant or installation. In this case, "a consuntivo" (literally, "to a final or definitive point") means "until the plant is operating satisfactorily," o "until the facility is ready to go into standard operation." Your context will indicate which nuance is more appropriate. -- Hope this helps, HC
