    About the Event

    An understanding on the entire AM process chain is extremely valuable to keep pace with rapidly growing AM technologies. New AM technologies are introduced in the market regularly and new applications requirements are coming up quite often. To accelerate the rate of technology adoption and to get involved in the adoption process one should have an understanding on industry specific requirement in addition to the general understanding on the AM process.

    This one and a half day workshop will offer the attendees an opportunity to get a comprehensive understanding of entire AM process chain which covers Data, Feedstock, Design & Simulation, Process Qualification, Testing, and Inspection, as well as on AM application requirements in specific industry sectors such as Aerospace, Medical, Defense, Energy, Construction, and Automotive. The workshop also covers gaps in AM standardization and the research initiatives from AM CoE to address the gaps. The workshop will take place at The Union Complex at the University of Texas, El Paso.

    Day 1: AM Common Data Dictionary and Its Applications These sessions will focus on data sharing and accessibility, and will introduce the first version of Additive Manufacturing (AM) Common Data Dictionary (CDD) developed by the AM Data Management Working Group. Organized in collaboration with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), this interactive workshop will explore the role of the CDD in applying and sharing AM data. The workshop conclusion will be a panel session of industry, government, and academic experts. The workshop follows up on the the recent AM CoE Additive Manufacturing Data Management and Schema workshop held in December 2019.

    Day 2: AM Value Chain – Technical Review These sessions, jointly organized by the ASTM International AM CoE and America Makes, will offer attendees a general understanding of the entire additive manufacturing (AM) process, including data, feedstock, design and simulation, process qualification, and inspection, as well as AM application requirements for industry sectors such as aerospace, medical, defense, energy, construction, and automotive. The workshop will also cover gaps in AM standardization and research initiatives by the AM CoE partners to address these gaps.

    An understanding of the entire AM process is valuable to help keep pace with today’s rapidly growing and changing AM technologies. New AM technologies and application requirements are regularly introduced in the market.

    Who Should Attend
    The workshop is open to all AM professionals, including industry (aerospace, medical, automotive, energy, and defense), academia, and government agency representatives who want to learn about the latest AM standardized practices, and the research and development initiatives that drive towards standard development.

    Why You Should Attend
    This workshop comprises of multiple interactive sessions offered by experts from AM industry that gives a unique opportunity for participants to indulge in fruitful discussions and to understand more about the best standardization practices. Each session is designed with a focus on industry needs and the role that standards can play in driving qualification and certification.

    Earn a Verification of Completion Certificate
    This workshop is the third offering from AM CoE Education & Workforce Development (E&WD) Program, which provides training opportunities for various levels of the AM workforce. Each workshop participant will receive a Verification of Completion Certificate from ASTM AM CoE.
