Specialty Services Capabilities


Assured Compliance

We understand the requirements for conformance with Canadian regulations

  • Pre-Start Health and Safety Review (PSR)
  • Technical Standards and Safety Act (TSSA)

We can complete these reviews and provide the right certificates and letters of conformance needed to be compliant.

Arc Flash

Safety is Key

We can assess your facility and provide detailed compliance reports that follow all the details that go along with OSHA, NEC, and NFPA70e. Our team can provide a detailed plan of action to keep your employees safe and avoid hefty fines.

We can help with labeling, protective devices, written programs, one line drawings, short circuit studies, PPE requirements, and more.

3D Scanning

Your Facility at Your Fingertips

We can capture any environment and translate it into a powerful tool. With the use of 3D scanning technology, we capture raw data and process it in a specialized way for easy to use ways for your team.

There are many uses and benefits of this technology including: virtual field checks, design future systems integrated with current ones, and easily communicate with other teams, asset creation for 3D libraries, reverse engineering, clash detection, and more.

Health Assessments

Health Assessments

We can assess your process equipment and conveyor systems to determine condition and longevity as well as identify problem areas requiring repair or replacement. Our independent evaluation helps you greatly reduce unplanned downtime and increase proactive response to potential maintenance issues.

Our inspection reports are clear, concise, and easy to understand and use. We also provide a unique solution that allows you to easily access electronic copies of the inspection reports, generate repair tickets, and track progress of addressing the issues found during the assessment.

Procurement Packages

Communicate Project Goals Effectively

Looking to complete a facility or equipment project? Our team can compile custom procurement packages for your project. These packages aim to clearly communicate the goals and scope of work for the project so that you get exactly what you’re looking for. This strategy also mitigates the risk of miscommunication and aims to get you consistent and accurate quotes from vendors while minimizing future change orders. DSI utilizes several strategies and technologies to produce quality procurement packages for your team.



Implement Perfection - The First Time

We work with you to fully understand your processes and utilize advanced software to model and analyze your operations in the current or future state. We provide a visual representation of your system and can analyze the following areas:

  • Identify bottlenecks
  • Verify throughput
  • Optimize production variables (scheduling, buffer size, storage capacity, and more)
  • Generate valuable production data from future state scenarios

Virtual Commissioning

Validate Early

We have a virtual commissioning lab that has the capabilities to model a controls system and validate controls logic and programming before the launch of a new system.  The system is first modeled in simulation software and then the PLC programs are uploaded to our virtual commissioning lab PLC’s where we can analyze the programs and debug issues.

This allows for the team to debug the system earlier in the project which mitigates timing and budgetary risks.


Let Our Experts Train Your Team

Our developed training courses are aimed at educating teams on items that aren’t highlighted in college courses. We aim to expedite the learning curve for of knowledge that is acquired through years in the industry.

We currently have standard courses in the following areas:

  • Conveyor Overviews
  • Power and Free Conveyor Training
  • Conveyor Chain Pull
  • Arc Flash
  • Conveyor Control Methods
  • Point Cloud Workflow

Our experienced staff also has the capability to customize training courses to fit your team’s needs.


Finite Element Analysis

We can analyze your 3D model to predict the stresses that it will see in the real world and prevent costly changes & safety concerns or optimize material selection and usage.

We will work with you to understand your situation and goals so that we can generate the right information for your team.

Standards and Spec Development

Complete and Dependable

Our understanding of facility systems development and operations can help create consistency and quality as you scale operations.

Our knowledge of drawing standards, system requirements, and specifications will create the quality and consistency you need in your facilities and equipment projects while also ensuring that you get exactly what you need from your suppliers.

Interim Technical Staffing

Right Beside You Every Step of the Way

Our team is available to become integrated into your team for a period of time. We have several disciplines of engineers that can provide their knowledge and work for your team.

Preventive Maintenance Solutions

Preventing Disaster

Our preventive maintenance services are aimed at saving you money and preventing unwanted downtime. Our team can analyze your business and help set up efficient preventive maintenance plans including strategies, documentation and integration with technological systems.

We are experts in providing in-depth assessments on manufacturing systems which provide detailed reports on potential issues for maintenance teams. These assessments go above and beyond routine maintenance reviews and can prevent costly failures.

Manufacturing Execution System (MES) Implementation

A Path to Industry 4.0

We have extensive knowledge in different >manufacturing execution systems (MES) systems and have partnered with MITS to strengthen the capabilities of our solutions.

MITS is highly configurable to meet requirements of each unique business and can help in the following areas:

  • Process Visualization
  • Order Management
  • Assembly Operations
  • Logistics
  • Maintenance support

Training Center Technology

Facility Design and Industry Specific Training

We design training center facilities with flexibility in mind – as industry requires change and evolves, training equipment and curricula can evolve with them.  Design Systems’ experience and knowledge can assist with identification of essential skills required, facility layout, and equipment identification. DSI provides best-in-class practices tailored to your specific industry or corporate needs.
