Material Property Matrix and Information Management for Additive Manufacturing

Project status: Complete

Thrust area: New Design Paradigms and Processes

Research team: Douglas Eddy

Companies can improve their product development timeline, quality, and capabilities to improve their bottom line by the effective use of Additive Manufacturing (AM) to design and manufacture their products in many cases. However, not knowing when AM is useful often wastes time and money. The rapidly evolving technology of AM is vastly underutilized in industry today because companies are uncertain of when using AM is advantageous for designing and manufacturing their parts.
