Quality and Production Management in Additive Manufacturing

Instructor-led Training2 DaysBeginner

Quality management as an umbrella term for organizational measures to improve process quality plays a major role in additive manufacturing. In addition to the measures generally known from existing quality management standards, such as a clear definition of roles and processes or the creation of clear communication structures, process specific aspects must also be taken into account in additive manufacturing. High complexity, a partial lack of general standards and little staff experience are just some of the aspects to be mentioned here.

The aim of this training is to enable the participating quality manager or production manager to implement a high quality level in AM production in a targeted manner. The training is very practice-oriented and includes the typical hurdles for an implementation as well as suitable measures to avoid them.

Target group of the workshop/training are quality managers and production managers who are or want to become active in AM series production.

Introduction to AM processes and industrialization

  • AM Basics and seven AM processes
  • Necessity of AM-specific standards

Company Management

  • Implementation of AM strategy
  • Positioning in the AM market
  • Supply chain management

Production Management

  • Production planning
  • Material handling
  • Consumption and spare part management

Sales and project management within AM

  • AM value sales enablement
  • Part requirement verification
  • Management and fulfillment of agreed requirements

Additive Manufacturing

  • Hardware requirements
  • System operation
  • Production control


  • System related post processing
  • Part related post processing
  • Component testing and delivery

Reproducibility of the process is ensured by implementing the corresponding processes and clearly defining the roles involved. Along the entire value chain, there are advantages such as compliance with health and safety regulations, the implementation of a continuous improvement culture or the identification of optimisation potential.

The training enables you to implement an AM-specific quality management approach in your company. This achieves a high level of quality for your customers and creates the basis for reproducible AM series production.
