3D printing offers transformative benefits for supply chains in terms of improving efficiency, speed, and certainty of supply, but poses a great design and implementation challenge for supply chain managers. How should 3D printing be implemented in the supply chain? Across what product range? Using which technologies? The broad scope of these questions creates a complex problem—developing the right strategy is critical to achieving the desired outcomes.
This article, authored by GRA's Michael Dentry and Charles Edwards, explores how to approach 3D printing within the supply chain, setting out a strategy for implementing 3D printing in your organisation today.
