How Additive Manufacturing Can Help Design Engineers Meet Manufacturability, Sustainability, and Cost Initiatives
The right manufacturing insights software can lower manufacturing risks and facilitate sustainability efforts. Products like aPriori’s manufacturing insights platform foster collaboration earlier in design with sourcing and suppliers. As a result, manufacturers can look for more environmentally friendly materials and production methods.
Additive manufacturing reduces reliance on one specific supplier, material, or process. Consequently, supply chain risk is mitigated. Additive manufacturing reduces exposure for the manufacturer if any of the suppliers fail or disappear. More local suppliers mean a reduction in carbon footprints. Now, manufacturing software platforms enable them to improve workflow and collaborate better with all teams throughout the product development lifecycle. Additive manufacturing makes design to cost a more manufacturable and sustainable reality.
How Design Engineers Can Quantify Additive Manufacturing
As a design engineer, you can play an integral role in quantifying the value of capital investments in additive manufacturing. You can utilize your technical expertise and innovative spirit to facilitate a seamless transition to this technology. Best of all, you can be a significant factor in improving profitability for your enterprise.
For those enterprises seeking related capital investments, employing a simple cost per part estimate does not illustrate the full investment picture. This is where you come in. You can provide valuable insights that underscore the value of additive manufacturing and quantify the ask with upper management.
