The world is progressing digitally, which forces companies to invest in future business models. Mid- to large-sized enterprises and manufacturers can benefit by learning how to utilize the AM network in order to help streamline the R&D process for 3D designs. The Siemens Additive Manufacturing Network allows companies to map the value chain of additive manufacturing in an automated manner, as explained in a recent blog, leading to a harmonious and interactive process flow between all the involved parties.
Scaling New Opportunities
Digitization acts as a transformative force on companies to invest in future business models. The Siemens Additive Manufacturing Network (short: AM Network) provides the digital foundation for companies to get fast access into the world of additive manufacturing, as well as to explore and scale new business opportunities in the field of 3D printing.
The AM Network is a digital, cloud-based collaboration platform that maps the value chain of additive manufacturing in an automated manner – from first customer contact throughout the order creation to comprehensive order management all the way down to production planning and finally controlling-conform reporting and shipping of the successfully produced AM parts. This way, the AM Network offers a joint place for collaboration where both, AM parts buyers and consumers as well as AM parts manufacturers and service providers can work together interactively and system-supported over the entire process flow.
