We transform the way companies make things and the very things they make.
Industry X is about finding that special something that ensures the clients we work with are always future-ready. It’s about creating new products that are cloud-connected and delivering new services through platforms that customers love. It’s about using intelligence to make better manufacturing and operating decisions, enabling our clients to do more with less, drive savings to the bottom line, and keeping people safe. Once intelligence has been embedded across our clients’ product and operating value chain, opportunities are endless. These include scalable solutions across multi-site operations, true virtual digital twin models of live operations able to test new processes and create sustainable, economical solutions, servicing of products before they break down and new customer experiences.
Across Accenture we have some of the world’s most competent designers, engineers, technology specialists, consultants and operations professionals. We work quickly and collaboratively to tackle client challenges in multi-skilled teams. Because we work with business leaders at every stage of the product and operating value chain and bring deep specialty skills, we can talk with our clients and their teams as equals on the shop floor or in the research lab - something we believe is critical to creating winning solutions that work.
The future of product design, engineering, production, operations, and servicing is being transformed by intelligence. For the last decade, Accenture has led the way in helping apply digital solutions across the business enterprise. We are now using those skills and applying them to take all of these areas to the next level.

Industry X leads digital transformation by focusing on Intelligent Products and Platforms and Digital Manufacturing and Operations. We use the power of software to make smart products more intelligent, while putting digital transformation at the core of manufacturing. Let’s take a closer look at both:
Engineering and design with a new attitude—This is all about getting products customers will love to market quicker and cheaper. It may start with a complete rethink of how a company approaches new product development and engineering. It may require existing products to become cloud-connected, along with creating entirely new products and platforms to connect them for a global release. And it may mean looking at a current product portfolio and coming up with new services that can be scaled quickly to drive new revenues for a client.
Engineering and R&D Digitization—Working with R&D and engineering professionals to modernize and digitize the entire product development process.
Smart-Connected Product Design and Development—Designing, launching and enhancing products that can be personalized for individual customers.
Product Platform Engineering and Modernization—Creating platforms that have been engineered to drive even greater customer experiences and new sources of revenue.
Product-as-a-Service Enablement—Using products as the method for delivering new services and providing cloud-enabled product support at the point of need.
The future of making things—This is all about digitizing entire manufacturing and plant operations not just in one location but simultaneously across many sites around the world. It’s about ensuring that large-scale infrastructure projects are delivered on time and on budget, it’s about looking holistically at operations using digital twin technology and driving scalable solutions that create significant savings on the cost of operating. It can also involve how workers and machines interact, how those employees can work more effectively in often challenging conditions, and it’s about embracing robotics and factory automation to boost safety and productivity.
Production & Operations—Working to increase production throughput and improving product quality.
Capital Projects—Ensuring large infrastructure, construction and engineering projects are delivered on time and on budget.
Digital Industrial Workforce—Using technology to keep workers safe and enabling them to do their jobs better.
Autonomous Robotic Systems—Implementing the latest robotic and automation innovation to maximize operations.
