Advanced Engineering Services
With DSI’s breadth of service offerings, clients have access to a full complement of engineering disciplines ready to assist any unforeseen event. They have been able to benchmark best-in-class practices across diverse industries. They are able to provide a full 3D look into plants and provide a ’street-view’ so all team members can see exactly what a problem is and what the solution will be. By being able to bring these floor level views into meeting rooms, the company helps the customer save time and money on travel costs and provides an outstanding communication tool for all stakeholders.
Another way DSI is helping their customers is by utilizing their drone technology to assist in preventive maintenance programs/health assessments to get a better view inside warehouses or different facilities. By being able to provide these advanced engineering services, it cuts down on the amount of people that need to be on site and is a much safer alternative than sending people to perform those services. The company also offers complete “Concept to Commission” services for the automotive, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, package handling, health care, steel manufacturing, and many other industries.

One such partnership is with Kettering University and their engineering department. DSI recruits students to spend their three-month ’work-term’ working for them and getting actively involved in their projects. Not only do DSI’s engineers help students in their learning, but new, fresh ideas and perspectives that students bring help DSI engineers as well. In addition, DSI is a member to dozens of Industrial and Technological membership groups, allowing them to connect with industry peers to serve their clients better.
