Best Practice in Process Selection

 

During this one day course you will compare the 7 ASTM defined processes in Additive Manufacturing, along with their sub-processes. You will work through realistic case studies, applying part selection and down selection principles and gradually put together a case for its technical, commercial and overall feasibility using a given technology. You will then apply this methodology to select an appropriate manufacturing unit.

Target Audience

Engineers and decision-makers who are interested in adopting AM and wish to apply best-practice process-selection methodology to meet the requirements capture of their products.

Learning Objectives

  • Outline the fundamentals of AM in order to compare it with conventional manufacturing
  • Compare the 7 processes on their technology, output and applications
  • Apply best-practice process selection methodology to a requirement capture for your chosen component
  • Apply the same down-selection process to relevant machines and select the most suitable for your requirements

Course Content

On this compact four-module course you will learn how to select the most appropriate technology for a given requirements capture. Includes our unique two-stage process selection tool which helps narrow down the available processes on a total of 18 criteria. Our methodology can also be used to select the most appropriate machine in a given technology. You will then put your skills to the test and apply this information to realistic interactive scenarios.
