Pavan Muzumdar is Automation Alley COO and also the CEO of the organization's successful Project DIAMOnD initiative, which is creating the largest distributed, independent and agile 3D printing network. In this session, Pavan will discuss lessons learned upon deploying the world's largest AM community and the importance of creating standards frameworks within the global manufacturing ecosystem for continued growth. Additive manufacturing will require new ways of thinking and working. In this session, Pavan will discuss four frameworks:

GLOBAL Manufacturers are recognizable via an international identification system, enabling collaboration, trust and quality across continents.

DIGITAL RIGHTS MANAGEMENT: The industry identifies the universal ownership and access rights to digital assets distributed across the ecosystem. This promotes scaling and credibility of distributed manufacturing.

QUALITY & CERTIFICATION: A standardized quality and Certification framework provides a mechanism to ensure and verify that components produced across multiple locations are functionally equivalent.

PRODUCT RECIPES: A Product Recipe framework provides a universally accepted mechanism to ensure that components manufactured in a distributed environment are functionally equivalent.

Learning Objectives:

  • Upon completion, participant will be able to better understand the benefits of a distributed additive manufacturing ecosystem.
  • Upon completion, participant will be able to better understand the importance of standards frameworks for additive manufacturing and how they apply to their business.
  • Upon completion, participant will learn about Project DIAMOnD as a case study of the distributed manufacturing model, including success stories from those in the network.
