The application of Augmented Reality in esthetic medicine and plastic surgery

The Augmented Reality application embedded by Transition Technologies PSC offers the adjustment of the flexible face model and allows the doctor to choose between the layers of the hologram. The solution may be applied for every patient whereas the surgeon has a chance to work with the latest and most updated information. This innovative product created in the result of the collaboration between TTPSC and Next Motion considerably decreases the risk of complications during procedures simultaneously improving their effectiveness.

The use of the Augmented Reality (AR) technology in the spatial design of a corporate production line

Market dynamics (also cosmetics market) requires manufacturers to make quick changes in the matters of both production and distribution. In this market segment, one of the principal marketing tools is grouping products in packages (for example, shampoo + conditioner, cream + makeup remover). So far such process has been carried out in the Polish division of L’Oréal through outsourcing, which has limited the possibilities of a dynamic reaction to market impulses. Having such line for completing and packaging cosmetics directly at the manufacturing level would allow for a more efficient management of the entire marketing and distribution process avoiding potential losses in case of an inadequate or delayed reaction to the market needs. Once L’Oréal’s management in Poland understood this need, an investment process was initiated in order to buy and implement such packaging sleeving in the Polish plant. As this is a large investment (of several million EURO), the decision-making in...

Creating a Holographic Gallery of the City of Lodz utilizing Augmented Reality technology

The Holographic Gallery of the City of Lodz and its revitalized urbanized areas has been developed by Transition Technologies PSC in accordance to the Municipality’s requirements. In order to ensure a maximum level of quality of the application, we have created a dedicated team which designed, implemented and delivered the application. TTPSC has created a high-tech solution utilizing Augmented Reality. The event visitors are able to download the app (using a QR code or directly from the website) and scan the Lodz EXPO 2022 logo afterwards. This results in displaying an interactive, virtual gallery of the City of Lodz, including vireos and a map of the City center on a users’ smartphones’ screens. Our application has been places in application stores for leading mobile platforms: Android Market and App Store. Regardless of the operating system owned by the user, he was redirected to an appropriate version of the application.

Augmented Reality technology applied in gastronomy

Transition Technologies PSC has introduced its partner with the technology of tomorrow, with a bright future in the gastronomy business as well – an interactive menu using Augmented Reality. After multiple meetings and agreeing upon details and requirements, Transition Technologies PSC delivered a unique application for smartphones. Each customer in a restaurant can download the mobile app from an appropriate application store for his smartphone. Afterwards, he can view the interactive menu from his very own device. Close-ups of meals, levitating logos, additional information visible only to app holders and countless additions have impressed a great number of Hard Rock Café’s customers.

Adaptable and safe working environment utilizing IoT and AR in the automotive industry

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is the world’s seventh biggest automotive enterprise with a global reach of operations. Despite the novelty of IoT and AR solutions on the Polish market, FCA decided to invest in development of these solutions with the help of the best industrial software experts from Transition Technologies. It was just through the first couple of meetings that the scope of the research project was set up along with a plan to implement the elements of its results. The resulting solution created a safe and efficient working environment in the manufacturing plant thanks to scalability corresponding to multiple various positions and jobs. The project itself has been named LINEA I.  The implementation of the Industry 4.0 concept has begun through support of an MRO department by implementing an IoT-based solution with a corresponding Augmented Reality toolkit for its workers.

Creating an effective way for remote service and management with Internet of Things

Planet Innovation exists to develop and commercialize products that have a positive impact on the world. Transition Technologies PSC build an unique Remote Service Management cloud application on the top of PTC ThingWorx platform. This solution is designed to keep high security and restrictions at all levels to ensure safety of the patients data records, while working remotely with fully accessible multiple Geri Servers and Incubator devices. This allows technical experts to access, monitor, troubleshoot and diagnose the individual devices remotely at any time using the ergonomic and easy to use web application build on the top of cutting edge Internet of Things platform hosted in PTC Cloud infrastructure.  The field service technicians can provide high quality, effective maintenance services to many different clinics and labs all over the word at the same time, which also spares a lot of onsite visits and allows to expand the business and increase profitability.

Classified military project for a Polish Armed Forces combat vehicle design and manufacturing organization

Polish Armed Forces for many years have bet on innovative technological solutions in order to address the requirements of a changing world. The challenge set before Transition Technologies PSC was to propose and provide the means to create a digital feedback loop and a digital equivalent of a product (Digital Twin) inside the design office. Retrofitting of a combat vehicle included creation of a prototype for remote diagnostics of a land vehicle for exploitation and operational performance data aggregation, analysis and archiving, as well as monitoring the usage of the vehicle. TTPSC has delivered a design of a physical layer of the solution,covering a military-grade central processing unit, wiring and sensors. Software, communication and data exchange layers have been implemented on top of that. As a result the design office received large amounts of data thanks to combat vehicle sensor implementation, such as monitoring of equipment operational effectiveness in real usage.

Standardization process “Desktop Publishing” with XML DocBook standard

Asseco Poland S.A. is a Polish information technology company listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange. They decided to invest in standardization with the usage of world-leading standards of a “Desktop Publishing” process, including the XML DocBook standard. The XML technology allows separation of content from the look-and-feel, thus resulting in a significant simplification in content creation and insertion of information into a hierarchical structure for authors, which in turn greatly simplifies the processes of documentation management and translation. In addition, the DocBook documentation standard is the most popular and mature in development terms, containing the richest catalogue of rules and elements, and is successfully applied in most professional publications using XML technology. Software from the PTC portfolio was chosen in order to implement such a solution, namely PTC Arbortext Editor and Styler.

Atlassian JIRA Service Desk implementation for at IT department of Vienna Insurance Group insurance synicate

Vienna Insurance Group (VIG) is a leading enterprise in insurance sector, performing business mostly in Austria and Middle-Eastern Europe. After initial analysis of potential platforms has concluded, the decision has been made to implement JIRA Service Desk, a tool developed by Atlassian, an Australian company. The choice has been evaluated as the most fitting, in part because another tool made by Atlassian – JIRA Software – was efficiently being used throughout the VIG group (except Helpdesk) for project management. This has resulted in a seamless integration of both platforms. The system implementation has covered the IT department for the whole VIG insurance group, cost around 30 thousand Euro and has finished middle-March 2016. After the software delivery all VIG employees took part in a training on the functionalities of JIRA Service Desk prepared and delivered by Transition Technologies PSC’s experts.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Transition Technologies has lowered project costs while delivering exceptional results. Their deep data migration and Windchill knowledge help the company tackle complicated projects. Although some team members lack experience, most integrate seamlessly with the internal team.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the professional services director for a global software company. I’m responsible for all the services that we propose and deliver to automotive suppliers in the central European region.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Transition Technologies PSC?

We needed technical implementation support for the development of customizations, integrations, and applications, as well as testing and data migration.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I’ve been working with Transition Technologies PSC in several areas. Many are long-term implementations of product and application lifecycle management for our customers.

They’re a strong partner whose support complements our internal resources. In some areas they augment our staff, but they also work independently on some specific projects like data migration.

We mostly use Windchill, Integrity, and ThingWorx. That’s where they have skilled resources that we can use on our projects.

What is the team composition?

The team size is based on the project, and is usually between 10-20 people. I work with several people, but I’m in contact with the management resources. I oversee quality rather than directly involving myself in all the projects. We determine the best resources to staff each project and discuss how we will address any issues. Those are the conversations I have with them.

How did you come to work with Transition Technologies PSC?

They offer what we call our Poland Solution Center, a strategic partner that our company selected for this type of work. It was a natural beginning for me because they had been defined as our partner. It’s a stable, proven relationship, which why continue to work with them.

How much have you invested with them?

We have spent $2 million in the last year.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together 10-15 years ago and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We have skilled people that can augment our team and help drive solutions to our customers, especially those that center around data migration. Their expertise enables them to deliver very complex projects. That’s a key success factor in our transformation projects.

They give us a competitive average rate. We can use them as offshore resources. It's great for us to bring in a mix of different people and roles, some onsite and some offsite. With their rates, we can provide very competitive services to our customers.

How did Transition Technologies PSC perform from a project management standpoint?

When we do projects together, we provide the project management. They are embedded in our own teams. If they do projects on their own, it’s with a team of one or two people that doesn’t require much management.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are very capable of developing Windchill customizations. We also rely on their considerable skills in data migration and setting up test management QA areas. I like that they’re flexible, committed, and proactive in their communication. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

I sometimes struggle with the fact that they’re growing fairly rapidly. Due to that growth, they sometimes have a lot of people that aren’t so experienced. This lack of experience creates some issues because they’re not very knowledgeable about what they need to do and how they need to do it. They need more ramp-up time or more coaching time with a more experienced architect from our side.

Feedback summary: 

The software solutions developed by them are always high quality, checked by a senior architect, and delivered on the deadline or close to it. The team communicates well and is responsive to any requests or questions, working hard to understand the project specifics and with reasonable prices.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

USG Engineering is a long-standing partner of PTC and have been for many years. I’m the solution architect.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Transition Technologies?

We do a lot of business where we implement new PLM and do a lot of migrations. We needed some customizations to PLM. Transition Technologies have the right skills for what we’re working on with. They are also engaging more customers at the IoT [Internet of Things] level with ThingWorx technology. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We came up with our specifications, talked to Transition, and they came up with the PLM solution that we tested. We take care of the customer side and let Transition take care of the rest. It allows us time to focus on the things we’re good at.

Another project which is currently running is in the IoT business. Our customer in the Netherlands wants high-quality, good service for their end customers. We have an IoT on ThingWorx where I can see what the service engineers are doing in the field. We’re addressing some issues up front, so they send it to the service engineer and can see more details of the machine running.

In the past, we did another project based on ThingWorx with more integration with Windchill. Together, we developed an expansion of a specific solution for a customer that would like to see the structure of the things in Windchill and printed to a printer to send out for supplies.

What is the team dynamic? 

It depends on how big the job is. Right now, we are working with one or two people. Normally one of our solution architects talks to me and we set out the highlights of the project, then later on, I discuss with their technical engineers what the details are. We’ve also had a project running with five programmers.

How did you come to work with Transition Technologies?

They have been PTC’s service provider in Poland for eight years. We were searching for someone with expertise we didn’t have. We asked PTC if they had a candidate in their network that could assist us. We started with a few small projects and found that they were good and understood what we needed. The quality is always high. We’ve never been waiting for them to meet a deadline. We have good communication and it’s been a good partnership for both parties.

How much have you invested with them?

Some projects have been a few thousand euros, all the way up to 15,000 euros [$17,650]. There were a lot of small projects this year.

What is the status of this engagement?

We have been working with them for eight to 10 years.

The large, ongoing project is handled professionally and expertly by the team, who produced a solution that meets the needs of the client in a way that is innovative and always being improved. They are efficient, knowledgeable, and deliver on what they promise.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am currently a senior technical advisor for KaaS BV. I am responsible for governing the cloud infrastructure for the project.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Transition Technologies PSC?

We needed help with infrastructure defining and building, and then deployment.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement? 

A couple of years ago, we started mapping out what we needed on the infrastructure and then actually started building it. When the developers came, there was a need to use a methodology to deploy building the code and new releases, which they were involved in. They helped us out with this project tremendously and it was a huge project for us.

When it comes to the infrastructure, Amazon Web Services [AWS] is the biggest component. For the automation, we used a lot of Jenkins, as well as another deployment tool for releases. It is a new PowerShell as well, and they had to get everything in order and put together a lot of technologies.

What is the team dynamic?

I was in contact with about 4 or 5 developers, as well as 2 people who built the infrastructure and did the automation.

How did you come to work with Transition Technologies PSC?

The impression that we got was they were very enthusiastic and knowledgeable, and they fit the bill for our needs.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with them on this particular project about 3 and a half years ago.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

There was a huge pressure on this project to deliver, and it is continuous. They came up with the perfect solution. Daniel [Software Developer, Transition Technologies PSC] came up with a solution of the deployment of releases, as it was a lot easier. Another member of their team suggested we use Jenkins, and a lot of the workload was delivered using that.

To this day, both ourselves and the main customer have been very happy with it. We wouldn’t have been able to meet our deadlines or goals if we didn’t have their team doing what they did.

How did Transition Technologies PSC perform from a project management standpoint?

I usually manage from my end if it needs to be done.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They said they could do something, and they actually did it. A lot of people say they can improve something and make it more efficient, but these guys delivered on that. For me, that was unique enough.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They are innovative and are constantly improving. They will sometimes show me things they have invented within their company that we are not using, but we really should be. For example, they have a tool to automatically shut down environments based on time and need, which saves a lot, and people should be using it.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

They are easy to deal with and are true to their word.

Feedback summary: 

Although Transition offers impressive programmers that have shown continual improvement over the years, the client would prefer a more consistent team with better communication instead of the rotating staff Transition provides. The price is also considered too high for the work expectations.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the project manager at PTC Brazil, which provides digital services for manufacturing companies.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Transition Technologies Productions?

We needed help implementing product lifecycle management (PL/M) programs for manufacturing companies.

What is the team dynamic? 

When we first started our partnership, we were working with over 20 members of their team. Currently, we’re working with four to six people. 

How did you come to work with Transition Technology?

We decided to work with them because they are highly skilled with expertise in up-to-date PTC products. 

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested over $3 million.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with them in 2014, and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Over the years, the quality of their work has increased. We are currently very happy with the work, and our customers are satisfied with the solutions we’ve provided them with in partnership with Transition.

How did Transition Technology perform from a project management standpoint?

We serve as their project managers.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are very impressive programmers. They understand the customers' needs and provide the best solutions for any problems we have. We also communicate well with each other. They work from Poland, while we are located in Brazil, but despite the work being remote, it’s still easy to express our expectations.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We prefer a more stabilized team, as opposed to the rotation of programmers we partner with now. And although our improvement is good, there's always room for improvement.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Savaco is an IT company active on the Belgian market. We have 3 divisions. Our IT division offers ICT Infrastructure and security for datacenters and the workplace. The Business Productivity Solutions division implements SharePoint projects for process optimization. Finally, the CAD [computer-aided design] and PLM [product lifecycle management] division implements CAD, PLM and IOT software for companies that do product development. I’m responsible for the technical teams of the CAD and PLM division and the BPS division. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Transition Technologies?

Transition Technologies worked with our CAD and PLM division. We implement software from the software vendor PTC, an American company, at the customer site and add customizations to those platforms. 

They supported us with Windchill customizations (the PTC PLM software) and implementations of ThingWorx, (the IOT platform of PTC ). The main challenge was the need for extra skilled resources in those domains. TT offered this in a very fast and flexible way.

 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They helped us with several projects, implementing customization on top of a PTC platform. One of them was an IoT [Internet of things] project where we developed a business case to demonstrate the possibilities of the vendor’s IoT platform to our customers. This was an engagement of 20 days.

We also worked together on a PLM project where we also implemented PTC software. They did large-scale customization for us on that platform using 1 developer for 3 or 4 months.

How did you come to work with Transition Technologies?

We met them at a fair organized by PTC. We have in-house developers, but we wanted to extend our team and add a certain amount of flexibility to the capacity we had. They were a good fit for us.

How much have you invested with Transition Technologies?

We invested around $45000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them last year. We aligned pretty quickly as far as what we wanted and what they could deliver. I think the initial contact took us a couple of weeks, and then we were able to start a project together.

It's an ongoing collaboration, and we hope to extend it to more projects. We have some in the pipeline that we’d like them to help with as well.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or impact of the engagement?

One of the projects that we did together involving building an IoT demonstrator from scratch. Based on feedback from inside the company and also from a number of customers, it was a very tangible demonstration. Customers could see how it works and appreciate the value of the solution. We were able to build this product together in a short amount of time. That certainly proved that they’re a good company to work with.

How did Transition Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

They have very short communication lines, so they reply quickly. I don’t know which processes or tools they use, but I don't need to have that information. As long as they deliver the results we need within the timeframe and budget that we agreed on, I'm happy.

What did you find most impressive about Transition Technologies?

I’m impressed by the knowledge of the people on their team. We have worked with other partners before for development work, but they had to look for the right resource before we could start the collaboration. Transition Technologies can deliver a good resource from the very start of the project. We don’t have to lose a lot of time interviewing people.

Are there any areas Transition Technologies could improve?

For the moment, no, I'm quite happy.
