DST can support customers from project concept through commissioning to include control engineering, instrumentation, control panel design and assembly, system programming, installation, and start-up.
Our engineering staff is purposely diverse in their respective formal training (degrees) and work experience. DST's technical roster includes electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, control engineers, chemical engineers, computer science engineers, and our "trained-in-the-trenches" engineering technicians.
These professionals are united as a team by a common goal: monitor and control critical equipment and data for DST’s customers, whether across the street or across an ocean, and do it to world-class standards of quality and cost-effectiveness.
Many DST’ers are former automation end-users themselves and so are not only first-class engineers and integrators, but also have personal understanding of today’s increasingly critical needs for projects delivered on-spec, on budget, and on-time.
Passion for effective execution and use of standard project management methodologies that greatly reduces risk-to-schedule and provides authorized customers with secure on-line access to their project’s progress indicators.
PLC and SCADA Programming
