0 comments

HP Inc and Deloitte Consulting have announced a first-of-its-kind alliance to help accelerate the digital transformation of the global manufacturing industry.
The two companies will collaborate on the implementation of HP’s 3D printing systems in large-scale manufacturing environments, applying their leading digital operations experience to help enterprises accelerate product design and production, create more flexible manufacturing and supply chains, and enhance efficiency across the manufacturing lifecycle.
They anticipate that this will help increase innovation, accelerate time-to-market, reduce costs and waste, and help large enterprises compete more effectively in today’s dynamic global economy.
The alliance will combine HP’s Jet Fusion 3D Printing solutions and tools, and its partner ecosystem with Deloitte’s global client reach and manufacturing relationships, digital operations experience, and success in supply chain transformation for some of the world’s largest companies.
“The Fourth Industrial Revolution is upon us. No sector of the global economy is undergoing more radical transformation than the $12-trillion manufacturing market,” says Dion Weisler, president and CEO of HP Inc. “Companies investing in digital reinvention are poised to outpace their peers. Building on our disruptive 3D printing technology, together with Deloitte, we are focused on helping customers transform and win in this new era.”
“The digitalisation of global manufacturing operations and practices will impact companies and consumers around the world, and 3D printing will play an important role in fundamentally changing manufacturing as we know it,” says Punit Renjen, global CEO at Deloitte. “This alliance comprises two exceptional brands and brings together HP’s leading 3D printing platform with Deloitte’s digital manufacturing experience and global client reach.”
The speed, economics, quality, and reliability of HP’s 3D printing solutions are enhancing business operations with a growing list of leading global companies including BMW Group, Jabil, Johnson & Johnson, Nike, and many more, as well as a wide array of manufacturing service bureaus in North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific.
HP’s end-to-end manufacturing ecosystem includes engineering, software, enterprise, and manufacturing workflow leaders such as SAP, Siemens, Autodesk, and Materialise as well as members of its open 3D materials platform including Arkema, BASF, Evonik, Henkel, Lehman & Voss, and Sinopec Yanshan Petrochemical Co.
Deloitte’s Supply Chain and Manufacturing Operations practice is a global leader in helping companies apply digital business strategy to manufacturing initiatives to drive operational excellence. Deloitte has formed an ecosystem of digital collaborators, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Cloudera, Dassault Syst√®mes, Google Cloud, SAP, and Siemens, to help clients accelerate their digital transformations. Deloitte will play an important role in helping organisations make use of 3D printing technology in their supply chain networks — a move that has the potential to fundamentally impact the way manufacturing organisations function.
