  • Identify parts that can benefit from DfAM.
  • Understand the technical capabilities and limitations of metal additive manufacturing.
  • Develop an economic model for candidate parts.
  • Apply a methodology for selecting and ranking candidate parts.

Who should attend?
The intended audience for this class includes project managers, design engineers, operations engineers, and quality managers working with metal additive manufacturing. In selecting candidate parts for metal additive, each of these roles must provide input and understand the factors influencing the process. This is not specific to any one industry, but it is most applicable to aerospace, automotive, and medical industries.

This ASME Virtual Classroom course is held live with an instructor on our online learning platform.

Certificate of completion will be issued to registrants who successfully attend and complete the course.
