Quantifying the Impact of Additive Manufacturing on Production Operation Responsiveness
Quantifying responsiveness to investigate how Additive Manufacturing (AM) influences production operation responsiveness?
Approach: Mixed Research Methodology
Quantitative: Devising an audit tool.
Qualitative: Obtaining data and validating on a real-life industry case.
An integrated software based audit tool to quantify and compare responsiveness of hypothetical configurations of AM enabled production.
To catalyse (or “demobilise”) the industrial adoption of AM in a production environment
Unit of Analysis: Production System
