SEE THE PRESENTATION

How we work

A formal specification is developed and presented to the client for approval. The specification will include the scope of the control project, functionality requirements and the desired performance of the system.

 

Once approved specifications are received from the client, our engineering staff starts development of the required installation and panel fabrication drawings.

 

The project engineer  issues the proper purchase orders to our vendors for the equipment needed for the project.

 

Using the final specification and drawings as a road map the software development team begins writing the control programs.

The software engineer makes the changes in accordance with the customer's comments and the software is finalized.

 

The DCI panel shop fabricates the necessary panels such as I/O cabinets, operator's console, motor control centers, etc.

 

After completion of the panels and software development,  the entire package is set up in our shop for functional testing.

 

The system is shipped to the client's facility where it is installed by the client or by a Doddridge Controls' affiliated contractor.

 

A startup team commissions the system and instructs the plant personnel in its operation.

 

Once the startup phase is complete, final documentation is issued to the client.
