Abstract

Most of companies in India has shifted from mass volume production to low volume production due to the innovation in the manufacturing industries. Hence this firms are forced to shift to low volume production. To stay firm during this unstable atmosphere, businesses have found new manufacturing technology to satisfy the necessity for increased flexibility and supply the required equipment to enable affordable small quantity manufacturing. Additive manufacturing is one of the technologies which is rapidly growing in the current scenario. AM is a manufacturing process that typically consist of material on a layer to form objects from 3D model data. Advantage of this method include new freedom of design, elimination of tooling requirements and lower economic volume. AM feature a kind of technologies for processing number of materials and for several years its major application has been prototyping or rapid prototyping. However, the recent growth of applications for direct part fabrication, or rapid fabrication, or rapid fabrication, has resulted from numerous research efforts focused on the event of latest processes and materials. This research focuses on the method of implementing AM and is motivated by the shortage of socio-technical studies during this area. It addresses the necessity for implementation framework to guide their efforts in adopting this potentially disruptive new class of technology for existing and potential future AM project managers to provide and generate a high potential product, new business opportunities. Based on a previous work view and qualitative

analysis of the case studies, and construct standard framework for successful implementation of AM technologies and test implementation factors related to AM technology.
