to focus their resources on the components and assemblies that offer the greatest AM potential. This includes, among other things, a key performance indicator system and an AI-based potential assessment: components can be assessed in terms of their technical suitability through an automated analysis of the geometry. more, key figures based on ERP data are to estimate the economic efficiency. The strategic use of AM in applications where massive advantages exist over conventional manufacturing can, thus, be systematized and facilitated. In addition, the DAP chair identifies AM-suitable components using a semi-automated screening approach. This way, the chair already supports companies with little experience in AM as well as companies with an existing additive production in developing their AM potential.
