Automation

Why We Automate

Automation frees people from the drudgery and repetition of performing a task over and over.  It provides a consistency that cannot be matched by humans, whether it’s taking a reading, assembling a unit, or even checking the appearance of a finished product.  It can pass information smoothly into records for either real-time awareness or post-processing analysis. With the proper architecture, the automation is easy to adapt to new measurements or tests for continual process improvement.

Laboratory Automation

Reproducibility is key in experiments, and automation can provide that from day to day and operator to operator.  With consistent results, the correct inferences can be drawn and useful conclusions reached.

Product Automation

Products that rely on measurements have automation at their heart. They must measure consistently if they are to act consistently, whether a safety-critical medical unit with fail-safe FPGA monitor, or a consumer product with a simple microprocessor inside. 

Manufacturing Automation

Products that are made consistently perform consistently, so automated assembly is key to a consistent product. Custom work cells using robotics and sensors can be precise and repetitive, so that the most important steps are accomplished with uniform accuracy.

Test Automation

Once completed, products are often checked for performance and precision. Automation tests with reliability, and the information can be managed for process control and feedback.

What We Hear

“The new motion control software driver looks great! Excellent!”

“Now the new source code adheres to a single
industry standard as well as our internal company
standard, paving the way for increased test ...

“The system is doing everything we want.”

“This was exactly what we wanted!”

“I must commend DSA for its excellent workmanship in the
installation of the FieldPoint hardware for our Facility Monitoring System.”

“DSA was able to keep the project within budget and deliver three weeks early.”

“I am really glad we are asking these questions. It is good to have
somebody who can move us in a more Automated direction.”

“Thanks for looking into my code and explaining what it does.  To be honest I had no idea!”

“[DSA] seems very well organized, very easy to work with.”

“DSA asks good questions and spoke knowledgeably
which led to a good & productive conversation.”

an HVAC expert by your side. This is really an impressive application.”

“The GUI was the literal showstopper at our tradeshow, and that was all DSA.”

AUTOMATION SOLUTIONS

What We Automate

Automated solutions that address both current and future needs are a critical challenge for businesses and their management. Yet, because of the expense of equipment, software and training, many systems are installed with the expectation that they will continue to operate productively, without change, over extended periods of time.

In fact, traditional automation methods tend to achieve short-term goals at the expense of long-term adaptive potential, often lacking the flexibility required to integrate business life cycle and market changes into the technology. In addition, even if the systems were designed with foresight and implemented with modularity or the flexibility to be changed, the time and skill required is itself a deterrent to the ROI compounding benefits of adaptation.
