Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) today announced the opening of the EY Digital Operations Hub at MxD (Manufacturing x Digital), a leading-edge advanced manufacturing institution and innovation center in downtown Chicago. The 6,700 square foot Digital Operations Hub provides digital manufacturing experiences featuring EY services, a wide variety of alliance relationships and MxD members to collaboratively work with clients to advance their digital transformation goals, resulting in more agile, sustainable and resilient operations to compete in today’s rapidly changing world. The capabilities also include a Long-Term Value Engineering Lab focused on better aligning the cost, quality and sustainability of client products with customer expectations.
“EY US is committed to supporting companies as they work to realize their digital supply chain and manufacturing goals,” says Brad Newman, EY Americas Advanced Manufacturing & Mobility Industry Market Leader. “We are thrilled to open the doors of the Digital Operations Hub at MxD leveraging EY technology and consulting capabilities to serve as a digital transformation architect and general contractor for companies across a variety of sectors.”
Since joining as a Tier 1 member in June 2021, EY US has worked with MxD to help companies advance the digital transformation of their manufacturing, supply chain and cyber operations. During the design and development process, EY US conducted numerous events to help companies build broader awareness and understanding about the capabilities and value of digital manufacturing and advance their respective digital transformation agendas.
A critical element of the Digital Operations Hub is the contributions and collaboration from EY GlobalEcosystem Partners. In particular, Dell Technologies, GE Digital, Microsoft, PTC and P&G have each been instrumental to the design, development and ongoing sessions being conducted with clients.
