Additive manufacturing as a still developing technology is driven more than other innovations by a good coordination of the software systems and the entire digital production chain.

Quality-relevant data needs to be available at every step of the production process and interfaces for recording and monitoring it have to be created to provide relevant data on components.

This working group has realized that AM places different demands on digital systems than conventional production processes and is therefore concentrating on the following main topics:

  • null

    Identifying necessary system interfaces which are not served in the classical production environment

  • null

    Defining white spots in the digital production chain

  • null

    Defining integrated, user-oriented software solutions

  • null

    Consolidating needs concerning relevant IT control

  • null

    Creating an agreement on software industry standards
