DSA joins Blackford Capital
Engineering

Why We Engineer

There are dozens of types of engineer, and system integrators must act as many types to complete a system. DSA acts as electrical engineers to condition real world signals into digital values a computer can read with amplifiers, interface boards, cameras, etc. We act as mechanical engineers to hold parts under test in the right place to be measured. We act as software engineers to coordinate the actions and measurements needed to present useful information to our customers.

Electrical Engineering

In order to effectively implement new automation and systems, it is critical that the electronics behind the system are effectively designed, developed, tested, and installed. DSA has developed, tested, and installed electrical controls for systems in a multitude of industries, including medical, automotive, aerospace, and power & energy.

Mechanical Engineering

When developing a new automated system, companies must often consider and evaluate mechanical components such as motors, test fixtures, actuators, or sensors. We have experienced engineers who design, source, test, analyze, and build mechanical systems that improve workflow and overall efficiency of processes and systems of any size. We utilize a variety of common tools in the mechanical industry to create mechanical designs for new systems and can validate through simulation efforts and prototype building to assure success of the final installation. We have experience working with regulated industries, such as medical device, food and beverage, and the military, to assure the proper equipment is selected and integrated to meet standards.

Software Engineering

Effectively developed software can promote system growth, streamline system flow, improve user experience, and cut process times. DSA utilizes a methodological approach to software engineering that focuses on documentation, user experience, scalability, and dependability. Our team is skilled in text based and graphical programming languages and will apply the best software engineering practices to design, develop, maintain, test, and evaluate complex software programs.

Systems Engineering

All automated systems require some level of systems engineering to assure the proper design, integration, and management of the system throughout its lifetime. DSA helps customers reach their goals through detailed planning and implementation phases designed to uncover and correct any invalid assumptions and real-world changing issues. Through proper management of these aspects of a system, the most robust, economic, and efficient systems can be created and maintained. DSA helps customers maintain their system through its lifetime and successfully implement changes, even in the most regulated industries, by utilizing the best modeling and advanced planning practices.

What We Hear

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

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

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

“DSA has stepped in and offered critical expertise and
the ability to listen and be patient with us as we
work to discover our particular ...

“I like your Plan Phase approach. Other companies only quote a large lump sum
(with so many unknowns) which is hard to get approved from ...

“This was exactly what we wanted!”

“I never would have been able to get this Z-stage motion to
this point in this short of an amount of time.”

“In hindsight, I should have given the job to professionals like DSA.”

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

“We had five other testers built by others,
and DSA’s was the first one that was done right!”

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

“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 ...

“DSA is just so much easier to work with, and is better with
deadlines than other vendors we’ve used.”

“The system is doing everything we want.”

“I am surprised you guys got as far as you did without
an HVAC expert by your side. This is really an impressive application.”

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

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

“Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication.”

“I’ve used this machine for years, and even learned
a few new things by working with DSA this week.”

ENGINEERING SOLUTIONS

What We Engineer

DSA engineers every project that we work on.  We examine the problem to be solved and engineer a system to solve it. The system may involve mechanical engineering to contain all the components, or to present a unit under test to the testing instruments. It may involve electrical engineering to condition the signals to appropriate levels for a computer to measure. It usually involves software engineering to coordinate measurements, present them, and save them for later analysis. It typically involves system engineering to select the appropriate hardware and bring it all together into a coherent whole.  Throughout, we strive to create elegant systems that are efficient, scalable, and understandable so that later engineers as well as our customers can expand and enhance the test system as needed.
