DTI BUILD PROCESS

As Detroit’s Global Tooling Leader, DTI has developed a repeatable process to consistently build tools overseas for the North American Market. DTI’s unique model offers the cost savings of a tool build in Asia while ensuring tools arrive built to North American standards. This saves our customers 20 – 30% on a typical tool build and provides the level of service and expertise of a local tool build.

INVEST DIRECTLY IN BUILD FACILITIES

  • With Joint Ventures in Korea and China, DTI invest directly in our Asian build facilities
  • This provides DTI control over the two most critical elements when building in Asia: Quality and Timing

ENGINEERING FOCUSED

  • Each with more than 20 years experience, our engineers were the pioneers in the global tooling strategy
  • With engineers from US, Europe, Japan, Korea, and China, DTI’S engineering team is composed of the top international tooling experts in Automotive

DELIVERABLE BASED OPERATING SYSTEM

  • Milestone completion is verified with data (Simulations, CAD files, progress images…) in our custom web application
  • Milestone deliverables are checked daily against the schedule to ensure tools arrive on time

LOCAL SUPPORT FACILITIES
