Abstract

Additive manufacturing is becoming a leading technology in the production of consumer parts. In order to compete with traditional methods which have had years to improve, additive systems must achieve a level of performance efficiency greater than it maintains today. While great effort is being expended to improve the printing time and add more systems level thinking to the problem, it is currently lacking a robust improvement methodology. To achieve the desired improvement, a technique from traditional manufacturing based on overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) is proposed. Overall additive manufacturing effectiveness (OAME) provides a methodology for enhancing this important emerging technology.
