HP and Deloitte will collaborate on the implementation of HP’s 3D printing systems in large-scale manufacturing environments. This could help enterprises that use HP’s 3D-printing system, such as Arkema, BASF, Evonik, Johnson & Johnson, and Henkel, accelerate product design and production, create more flexible manufacturing and supply chains, enhance efficiency across the manufacturing lifecycle and by this increase innovation, accelerate time-to-market, reduce costs and waste, and compete more effectively in today’s dynamic global economy.
The alliance will combine HP’s Jet Fusion 3D Printing solutions and tools together with Deloitte’s global client reach and manufacturing relationships, digital operations experience. Deloitte’s Supply Chain and Manufacturing Operations practice is a global leader in helping companies apply digital business strategy to manufacturing initiatives. Deloitte has formed an ecosystem of digital collaborators, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Cloudera, Dassault Systèmes, Google Cloud, SAP, and Siemens, to help clients accelerate their digital transformations. Deloitte will play an important role in helping organizations make use of 3D printing technology in their supply chain networks.
“The digitalization 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 Punit Renjen, Global CEO at Deloitte.
This alliance will begin in the U.S. and expand to other geographies. The companies will offer solutions that combine Deloitte’s business transformation capabilities with HP’s managed print, device-as-a-service (DaaS), commercial mobility, and cybersecurity offerings.
