About McKinsey & Company’s involvement

The Digital Capability Center Chicago is one of the only of its kind in the Americas, founded by McKinsey in partnership with MxD. Visitors witness the end-to-end operations transformation of a simulated company.

Factory Floor

MxD’s 22,000-square-foot research factory is used to test and demonstrate new technology; train the workforce on these new systems and tools; and demonstrate the need for cybersecurity in manufacturing. 

At McKinsey’s Digital Capability Center on the factory floor, visitors experience the transformation of a refrigerator compressor assembly line from its non-digital, lean “current state” to a higher-performing, digitally transformed “future state.” The experience also shows how digitization improves a company’s financial performance.
