Abstract

Additive Manufacturing for spare parts is often discussed from a supply chain perspective, extoling the opportunities to reduce inventory and improve service in the supply chain. This paper examines possible scenarios for the mechanisms through which additively-manufactured automotive spare parts might be realised in the future, building on previous reviews of literature in this field. The paper also examines the technical challenges which may exist in the transition from traditional manufacturing processes to Additive processes for automotive spare parts.
