Additive Manufacturing Process Selection Using MCDM
- 10 Downloads
Additive manufacturing (AM) has huge benefits over traditional manufacturing, viz. cost saving, lesser product development time and lead time. AM easily produces complex geometry. However, selecting the right AM process/machine compatible for part as per customers’ specification and manage manufacturability and functionality is a critical issue. This study uses a multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM) methodology for deciding the most suitable AM process that is presented. For this, 17 criteria under five group criteria are used.
