The Deloitte difference

Additive manufacturing at scale is here, and there is a real opportunity to maximize its value by digitizing key elements of the product and supply chain lifecycle. That’s where Deloitte comes in.

We’re focused on these key solutions to help our clients realize the power of incorporating additive manufacturing into their digital operations:

Intelligent supply

A single seamless strand of data that stretches from the initial design to the finished part, the digital thread is the key to optimizing additive manufacturing production capability. Watch the digital thread video series.

The digital thread

A revolutionary manufacturing approach, “digital thread,” is moving the design, manufacture, and testing of industrial parts and machines into the digital sphere. A new video series from MIT Sloan Management Review and Deloitte Insights follows the creation of an aviation part as it moves along the digital thread, creating a growing knowledge base of data and feedback as it evolves from design to final testing.

Watch the full series and follow the conversation on Twitter with #DigitalThread.
