ASTM International’s Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence (AM CoE), in collaboration with America Makes, debuted a strategic guide that identifies gaps, challenges, solutions and action plans for additive manufacturing data.
The strategic guide comes as a result of a December 2019 workshop on additive manufacturing data management and schema that was jointly organized by ASTM International and America Makes held in Washington DC area. The workshop brought more than 100 experts from government, industry, academia together for a series of technical talks, panel discussions and brainstorming sessions related to data in AM.
Recent developments in digital data acquisition, analysis, machine learning and artificial intelligence, and modeling could quickly accelerate the AM development timeline. However, this growth has yet to be observed.
