Optimal Design of Additive Manufacturing Supply Chains

  title={Optimal Design of Additive Manufacturing Supply Chains},
  author={Jo{\~a}o P. Basto and Samuel Moniz},
Additive Manufacturing (AM) is one of the most trending production technologies, with a growing number of companies looking forward to implementing it in their processes. Producing through AM not only means that there are no supplier lead times needed to account for, but also enables production closer to the end customer, reducing then the delivery time. This is especially true for companies with a wide range of low and variable demand products. This paper proposes a mixed integer linear…

An updated estimate of the value of goods produced is provided and an approach for examining and understanding the societal costs and benefits of this technology both from a monetary viewpoint and a resource consumption viewpoint is proposed.

Production paradigms for additive manufacturing systems: A simulation-based analysis

A procedure for the simulation-based analysis of FMS hosting additive manufacturing stations, supporting their planning, design as well as performance evaluation and an application carried out in an academic environment where the simulation model was employed for evaluating the behaviour of new additive manufacturing technologies.

Simulation-Based Analysis of Additive Manufacturing Systems for Fuel Nozzles

This research aims to analyze additive manufacturing systems – based on powder bed fusion technologies – applied to aerospace fuel nozzles by modeling and simulating different scenarios regarding the allocation of resources and showed that the optimization of resources utilization is bounded by the number of additive manufacturing machines.
