Additive manufacturing is a disruptive technology and at Fieldmade we assist your company in making this conversion. New business models and strategies are required to transition towards a digital, on-demand spare part supply chain. Our operation managers and AM experts will bring your company on the AM fast track towards value creation.
Additive Manufacturing Services
We assist you in developing an AM strategy, methodologically investigating business opportunities and laying out a business plan for AM implementation. We initiate the process by mapping out the AM maturity landscape for your business segment and value chain and define strategic objectives for a viable AM concept. Furthermore, we assess your component inventory using our in-house part selection tool for additive manufacturing. As a final point, we work with key personnel in your organization to co-develop an implementation plan for the AM strategy, including but not limited to benefits estimates, risk assessments and investment needs.
Pilots are powerful tools for verifying new technologies and business cases. Additive manufacturing is a promising technology with multiple up-sides, and we advise you to methodologically selecting the components that align with your company goals. The company goals may be either reduced costs, reduced supply chain risks, mitigation of obsolescence challenges, etc. We suggest selecting your pilot components as a next step after having followed our part selection process; in this way you are likely to capture the high impact use cases. Once pilot part selection is in place, our highly competent AM experts will facilitate the entire process from print preparation, additive manufacturing, quality assurance, and testing. We generate accompanying impact reports for all pilot studies.
