SPETA : Tell me more about your business
DTS : We are a regional Siemens Smart Expert partner providing the complete Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions toward Industry 4.0 Digitalization. We provide consulting, engineering and training services. We specialize in solving problems encountered by the from Automotive, Mould & Die, Aerospace, and Electronic Industries. Today we have about 10 staff in Singapore, and a total staff strength of more than 30.
SPETA : How did the bosses of the company get started?
DTS : We have deep experience in such services, some 20 years of combined experience between us. In 2013, we decided to start. Since then we have done well, despite the challenges of COVID.
SPETA : What do you foresee this year?
DTS : We can see the clear need by many SPETA members to be more familiar with CAD. Hence we started the CAD Made Easy initiative last year, it was jointly announced with SPETA at ITAP 2021 which took place in November. SPETA members can obtain a free software suite to help them start the CAD journey. We also give such companies support if they have questions. We are happy to continue to offer this.
SPETA : Yes, companies can get more information on our web site. Is there a project which you are especially proud of?
DTS : We are working on Digital Twin opportunities with Temasek Polytechnic. We have also developed a virtual crane for ITE College West. This allowed them to provide training without the actual physical construction of a crane, which was not possible on their premises.
SPETA : Any final words?
DTS : There is much more to be done by Singapore’s manufacturing SMEs in the area of digitalisation. But they issue is how one implements and uses the solutions, not what software is used. We are here to help them.
