HP Inc. and Deloitte will work together to accelerate the digital transformation of the global manufacturing industry, the companies said today. They are set to collaborate on the implementation of HP’s 3D printing systems in large-scale manufacturing environments, applying their digital operations experience to help companies accelerate product design and production, create more flexible manufacturing and supply chains, and optimize efficiency across the manufacturing lifecycle.
The alliance will combine HP’s Jet Fusion 3D Printing solutions and tools with Deloitte’s global client reach and manufacturing relationships, digital operations experience, and supply chain transformation experience.
“The Fourth Industrial Revolution is upon us,” HP CEO Dion Weisler said in prepared remarks. “No sector of the global economy is undergoing more radical transformation than the … manufacturing market. Companies investing in digital reinvention are poised to outpace their peers.”
The companies asked John Dulchinos, VP of digital manufacturing at Jabil, to comment: “3D printing empowers design freedom and product personalization while delivering a digital thread to transform supply chains and open the door for distributed manufacturing,” he said in prepared remarks. “As part of this powerful ecosystem, Jabil works with leaders like HP and Deloitte to help customers across different industries benefit from HP’s … Multi Jet Fusion technology to make production-grade parts in volume and ramp additive manufacturing innovations.”
