If industrially used components are manufactured using additive manufacturing processes, it must be proven that these meet the requirements. To this end, the production chain and environment must be designed in such a way that the process quality and the resulting product quality are always consistent and reproducible. In order to assure the before mentioned consistency and reproducibility, is of utmost importance to assure that the involved workforce is adequately qualified for the several production stages. This document describes the activities and responsibilities of the actors on the field of the Additive Manufacturing technology. Once approved, this standard will carry the designation ISO/ASTM 52937.
The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
