3Diligent Launches Industry 4.0 Consulting Services Focused on Strategic and Design Advisory for Additive Manufacturing

Sponsored by Businesswire

announced today it has formally launched 3Diligent Consulting, a new
division that works with manufacturing businesses to develop strategies
and designs that can provide them a competitive advantage for Industry

Additive manufacturing is helping usher in a revolutionary restructuring
of the global supply chain, a transition broadly termed “Industry 4.0.”
Once fully realized, 3D Printers, CNC Machines, and other means of
robotic fabrication stand to provide an unprecedented degree of
localization, customization, and flexibility to manufacturing
activities. However, structuring an organization to optimally compete in
this future state requires an in-depth understanding of the myriad
technologies and materials now coming into market, and how to consider
allocation of these solutions around the world.

As a division of 3Diligent, which also boasts a manufacturing division
with a global manufacturing footprint, 3Diligent Consulting combines
on-the-ground manufacturing expertise with the pedigree of a top-five
global management consulting firm. 3Diligent Consulting is led by Cullen
Hilkene, CEO of 3Diligent and formerly of Deloitte Consulting’s Strategy
and Operations practice.

“There are a number of companies delivering Industry 4.0 consulting
services, but none have the unique perspective of actually delivering
parts across dozens of additive processes,” Hilkene said. “Combining
3Diligent’s hands-on experience with the rigorous training I gained
delivering consulting engagements at Deloitte and am imparting to our
consulting team, we are able to deliver our clients an unmatched value

Strategic Advisory and Design Advisory Services

3Diligent Consulting offers two main advisory services to help companies
make optimal use of additive manufacturing and other digital
manufacturing technologies across their organization.

Strategic Advisory Services for Industry 4.0
Consulting’s Strategic Advisory Services are designed to help customers
build their Industry 4.0 strategy. Central to this offering is
developing a strategy for how digital manufacturing solutions like 3D
Printing can be effectively incorporated into broader corporate
direction and supply chain strategy. Specific engagements may focus on
high level additive strategy or supply chain strategy or address
foundational elements of a robust Industry 4.0 strategy such as voice of
customer studies, business case development, and part identification for
additive manufacture.

Design Advisory Services
3Diligent’s Design Consulting
practice provides clients support in developing tangible part and
assembly designs that are optimally suited for digital manufacture. 3D
Printers are capable of delivering geometries that are impossible or
implausible to manufacture any other way. Such geometries are capable of
delivering higher performance and as a result competitive advantage and
customer satisfaction. 3Diligent Design Consulting provides Design for
Additive Manufacturing services including topological optimization and
generative/parametric design to achieve superior design concepts that
might never be dreamed up by engineers. 3Diligent couples these design
capabilities with consulting support for material and process selection
to ensure that innovative designs are manufacturable to the furthest
bounds of current technology.
