Kearney Launches Digital Model Factory

Global consulting firm Kearney and strategic partner LIFT Manufacturing Institute today officially launched the Digital Model Factory, a hands-on facility where industrial companies can explore how to best apply Industry 4.0 technologies in their operations.

The new Digital Model Factory (DMF) is located in LIFT’s 100,000 square foot facility in Corktown, Michigan ― a technology hub for the automotive, aerospace, and industrial sectors. The DMF features a manufacturing and assembly line equipped with advanced manufacturing analytics and augmented reality solutions that let visitors experience the power of digitally augmented operations.

“Together, Kearney and LIFT will help companies across the United States take the critical next step toward making digital manufacturing a reality on their factory floors,” said Doug Mehl, Kearney Partner and the firm’s Global Lead for Industry 4.0 Strategy. “Our shared mission is to drive a step change business performance.”

“We’re excited to bring Kearney’s deep Industry 4.0 expertise to our ecosystem of innovative OEMs, industrial suppliers, research institutes, workforce development organizations, educational institutions, and professional societies,” said Nigel Francis, CEO and Executive Director of LIFT, a public–private partnership between the U.S. Department of Defense, industry and academia.

Four key questions the Digital Model Factory answers:
