- Expected benefits of deploying AM across an enterprise and their specific sources
- Successful methodologies to define AM deployment programs
- Key considerations to ensure successful deployment of AM programs
The Process Industries face business headwinds that can be mitigated by additive manufacturing technologies. The cost pressures resulting from product substitutes and competition, the increasing heterogeneity of customers, increasingly complex supply chains and associated costs, regulatory pressures, and more advanced and complex technology required for production are among the largest challenges. These segments account for over 15% of AM technology use, and nearly 50% of these applications are in manufacturing. How are these companies applying AM technology to address the industry challenges? How are they identifying AM applications yielding high returns on investment?
In this webinar, we will discuss the potential benefits of AM to the constituents of this industry segment,. We will present approaches to identifying the value of enterprise-wide deployments of AM for production that stand to generate attractive returns on investments. Finally, we will present examples of the approach in the industry segment.
