Additive Manufacturing

Unlocking potential through digital prototyping and parts manufacturing


Goals & Benefits

3D printing is one of the most exciting technologies for manufacturing and research & development. In the training, you will develop an in-depth understanding and skills for this manufacturing method. This includes the technology, proven process models, leading cross-functional teams required for 3D printing, and analyzing your customer’s core needs. In addition, you will learn how to concretely introduce Additive Manufacturing in your company as an innovation manager:
Redefinition of customer’s needs, derived requirements for production
Rapid inductive approach via assumption validation in the introduction
Rapid implementation by breaking down proof of concept and implementation work into small experiments
Overview of technical possibilities in 3D printing


Interactive, sustained learning through theory, best practices and concrete implementation with examples:

  • Overview of manufacturers, processes, materials and applications
  • Definition and confirmation of a 3D printing concept
  • Integration of the option into existing processes (incl. control of the new interfaces)
  • Pilot implementations with fast feedback, sourcing strategy and optimization of process chains
  • Analysis of application areas and scalability of 3D printing possibility
  • Description of different scenarios for 3D printing (shortening delivery time, reducing manufacturing costs, improved functionality, dematerialized value proposition, etc.).
  • Success factors and challenges



Target group

  • Top Management
  • Middle Management
  • Professionals and managers from corporate development / strategy
