STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 994 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which 3D Printing improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 994 standard requirements:

  1. How many people chose to print artistic items, how many chose to print parts to fix things, how many chose something that could save lives, and who designed something new?

  2. Where should future efforts be directed to accelerate the adoption and use of 3D printing in the context of supply chain and supply chain management?

  3. Did the additively manufactured part eliminate or reduce the number of piece parts required to traditionally manufacture and assemble the part?

  4. How do you take 3D printing and really, the broader category of additive manufacturing and disrupt the traditional manufacturing industry?

  5. Is the system characterized by independent entities that may be scheduled, or is there a central model for scheduling of activities?

  6. Does 3D printing in a first-year engineering design project increase employee learning and understanding of design as a process?

  7. How is the software used in 3D printing different or the same as the software used in other automated manufacturing processes?

  8. Does the use of 3D printing in a first-year engineering design project increase employee interest in the engineering project?

  9. How can a more distributed manufacturing system based on 3D printing create a circular economy of closed-loop material flows?

  10. How would the availability of a digital product memory stimulate value for your customers, your business partners and you?

With this Three Step process you will have all the tools you need for any 3D Printing project with this in-depth 3D Printing Toolkit.

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose 3D Printing projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
  • Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
  • Integrate recent advances in 3D Printing and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make 3D Printing investments work better.

This 3D Printing All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
