3D printing has captured the imagination of the media and the financial markets. Prognosticators are predicting a fundamental disruption in the manufacturing paradigm, from mass production to mass customization. Are we on the path to achieving the "lot size of one?” Will factories disappear as custom-designed items are created on 3D printers in the home? How will these changes affect end-to-end supply chains?
Our speakers will discuss the current state of 3D printing (application, limitations, examples), advances on the horizon and their potential impact on the supply chain, and a case study of how 3D printing is incorporated into the supply chain at a specific company.
*Participants are invited to join in a tour of a GTMI lab following the event.
Panelists from: Georgia Tech Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute, Terminal Velocity Aerospace, and Coca-Cola Enterprises.
