HP and Deloitte have joined forces to go after the $12 trillion global manufacturing industry via digital reinvention focussed on HP’s Jet Fusion 3D Printing solutions and tools.
The two companies will collaborate on the implementation of HP’s 3D printing systems in large-scale manufacturing environments, applying Deloitte’s digital operations experience to help enterprises accelerate product design and production, create more flexible manufacturing and supply chains, and optimise efficiency across the manufacturing lifecycle.
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.
“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,” said Deloitte global CEO Punit Renjen.
“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.”
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 Systèmes, Google Cloud, SAP, and Siemens, to accelerate clients’ digital transformations.
The move also reinforcies existing relationships the companies have, such as that with Siemens PLM software. Tony Hemmelgarn, president and CEO Siemens PLM Software, announced that the move: “creates greater opportunities to digitally transform the global manufacturing industry.”
“We see enormous potential in the next generation of product design, engineering, manufacturing and business innovations that elevate the voxel control and production-ready capabilities of HP’s Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing technology.”
“No sector of the global economy is undergoing more radical transformation than the $12 trillion manufacturing market,” said HP president and CEO Dion Weisler.
“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.”
