AM breaks two existing performance trade-offs: capital required to achieve economy of scale and capital required to achieve scope
AM implementation and scaling
Changing the capital versus scale relationship has the potential to impact how supply chains are configured, and changing the capital versus scope relationship has the potential to impact product designs.
These impacts present companies with choices on how to deploy AM across their businesses.
