This video introduces the additive manufacturing framework used to explore the impact that these technologies can have on the delivery of business value. Begin by developing an understanding of how AM can influence tradeoffs between capital, scale, and scope. Then use those concepts to build a four-quadrant framework for use in analyzing AM impacts. Subsequent videos explore each of these quadrants in greater detail.
- Hi there, we're back at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. When we were at America Makes in Youngstown, we devoted our attention to understanding the first question of this course: that is, what is additive manufacturing? We looked at a variety of technologies, trying to understand their applications and their advantages and disadvantages. Back here at Marquette, we want to explore the second question: that is, how do I think about the impact that additive manufacturing can have on my business? In order to answer that question, we're going to explore a simple, economics-based framework that can help facilitate the discussion with our colleagues, our boss.
