Quantum in Manufacturing, Logistics, Mobility, and More
D-Wave is the practical quantum computing company delivering real business value for manufacturing, supply chain and logistics, scheduling, and mobility applications today. Quantum computing is already helping to optimize many key parts of the value chain in Industry 4.0.
Delivering Real Business Value Today
Our manufacturing, mobility, and logistics customers include Global 2000 customers such as Volkswagen, DENSO, and Toyota. They have identified complex business problems where quantum hybrid solutions can deliver an edge to help drive revenue, streamline operations, and reduce costs. Find out how D-Wave customer DENSO has applied our quantum technology to smart factory floor automation.
Quantum in Production: Optimizing E-Commerce Logistics
The first commercial quantum applications in production are using D-Wave’s quantum technology. An “in-production” quantum application means that the business has gone through the quantum journey from use case exploration and identification, to validation, POC and pilot, all the way to deploying a real-world application that is delivering ROI-driving business outcomes.
Unlock Your New Competitive Edge
Forward-thinking manufacturing, logistics, and mobility businesses can secure a first-mover advantage today by starting to explore specific problems that can benefit from quantum computing. Get a head start on your quantum journey by identifying relevant quantum use cases now and achieving quantum solutions faster. Future-proof your business and accelerate time-to-value with smarter decision-making, enhanced risk management, lower operational costs, and increased revenue.
“The auto-scheduler is saving both time and effort, trimming what was once an 80-hour task to just 15 hours each week, an 80%-time savings.”

Built for Optimization Across the Value Chain
D-Wave's technology is based on quantum annealing, which is best for combinatorial optimization problems with large numbers of variables and constraints. These types of problems make up a large part of the manufacturing problem space across every part of the value chain, such as materials procurement, robotics, plant maintenance, route optimization, pricing, staffing, scheduling, and more. Using D-Wave quantum technology, Volkswagen saw a significant improvement in efficiency for both route optimization and a car painting assembly line.
