Capgemini, announced the launch of its new Digital Manufacturing Services. The offer brings together the Group’s established industry expertise to help manufacturing clients to realise turnaround time reduction and productivity gains through building smart connected plants and products, to enable them to adopt new business models for the digital age. Services will be delivered through a digital manufacturing Center of Excellence (CoE) in Mumbai and 3 digital manufacturing hubs located in North America, France and Germany. With a year on year growth of over 20 percent, Capgemini’s Digital Manufacturing Services combine its strong consulting, technology and engineering capabilities to help customers with digital strategy, transformation planning and implementation.
From product and asset conception to full production, digital technologies are transforming the manufacturing business. New customer expectations, such as mass customization and product-as-a-service, further accentuate the need to embrace digitization across the manufacturing value-chain. Smart, connected products, assets and operations offer the potential for time to market reduction, productivity gains, cost savings, new revenue streams and new business models. However, digital transformation demands new thinking, skills and ways of working as the Internet of Things (IoT), operations and information technology converge.
“Too many manufacturers are thinking of ‘digital’ in terms of either the factory floor or customer not both. Only by looking at digitizing and connecting both the customer and smart operations can manufacturers truly realize the optimization and disruptive capabilities of digital to drive growth,” comments Jean-Pierre Petit, Global Head of Digital Manufacturing, Capgemini Group. “Capgemini’s capacity to connect the physical and virtual worlds is unique in the market. Our ability to not only connect physical assets to business systems while also leveraging customer insights as an integral part of digital transformation initiatives, has proven its value to manufacturing clients across the world, in their quest to successfully transform their businesses for the digital age.”
Capgemini’s Digital Manufacturing Services help clients improve their digital maturity across smart product and services development, product and asset lifecycle management, industrial cybersecurity, on-site and remote operations management, Industrial IoT and Big Data, and complex system simulation. Through its Digital Manufacturing Services offer Capgemini enables companies within manufacturing industries such as Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, Chemicals, Consumer Products, Energy and Utilities, High Tech, Industrial Products, Life Sciences and Resources to embrace digital transformation.
