Through an overview of the applications of these technologies with the traditional ones, where they replace the traditional ones and where they work together, all the key implications and how this influences the company at all levels. Additive manufacturing is not just AM, we must consider the entire infrastructure, consisting not only of the AM machines but also of the software, pre-processing, process monitoring, post-process treatments, facilities, hand workplace, etc. As well as the standards that need to be met to talk about AM factory, again, certificates and management of the whole system.
This involves several changes in management, data generation, initial sales in the supply chain and the business model. This is the knowledge we share for a comprehensive view of the additive and Industry 4.0 landscape.
