Purpose and goal
The goal of the project is to strengthen the competitiveness of the Swedish manufacturing industry through increased production flexibility and shorter time-to-market. This will be accomplished by aligning the digital and physical supply chains in additive manufacturing (AM) for industrial production and product development of innovative large scale plastic components.
Expected results and effects
By employing a fully digitalized and secure supply chain, DiLAM will demonstrate how AM and digitalization can combine to increase flexibility while reducing the threshold and associated risks of introducing large scale AM for the participating end users. The long term impact of the project will be increased adoption of digitalization in AM by the Swedish manufacturing industry with increased flexibility and competitiveness as a result.
Planned approach and implementation
The project started on 1 June 2017 and will end on 31 May 2020. The digitalized supply chain for AM of large scale components will initially be implemented and subsequently demonstrated through a series of case studies. The case studies are selected by the participating companies (end users) which all have a strong need for digitalized and integrated additive manufacturing in order to reduce lead times for manufacturing of customized products.
