 Enhancing a Multi-site Paint Mixing System - IoT ONE Case Study
The Challenge

The Client needed a reliable partner to provide baseline support and continuous improvements to this business-critical system.

When approaching Objectivity, the Client was using a bespoke application delivered by a third-party vendor. In addition to maintaining and supporting the solution, the primary goal of the project was to make the system more user-friendly for non-technical users. 

The Client wanted to automate this process as well as reduce the solution’s technical debt, which was slowing down paint production. Moreover, the existing desktop app had compatibility issues with the new version of the Microsoft operating system.

The Customer
About The Customer

The Client is a global paint manufacturer leveraging multiple production sites on several continents. All those factories are supported by a single system for mixing and labeling produced paint.

The Solution

The Client approached Objectivity with a desktop application for mixing and labeling paint that was delivered by a third-party vendor. While the application was still in use, it had significant technical debt, needed improvements, and wasn’t compatible with the upcoming new Microsoft operating system.

The application was hosted on a virtual machine without access to its source code, which presented a significant challenge in the project.

This extended cooperation is based on the DevOps model, where a shared team is responsible for the support and maintenance of the solution, as well as for making enhancements and developing new features. Objectivity provides active support, leveraging the strong knowledge of the system and the Client’s business to recommend improvements.
