“‘Start with the end in mind’ – Design for Supply Chain – an integral approach to develop smart products” – Presented by Marc Schrijvers, Philips Industry Consulting

Freedom of design is perhaps the most important benefit of 3D printing or additive manufacturing. Where traditional supply chains evolve to supply networks the link between initial design and final supply gets more complex. Design for Supply Chain offers a solution to unlock the full potential of additive manufacturing. This structured step-by-step methodology addresses supply chain aspects in the early stage of design. It is a proven tool enabling effective decision making and maximizing smart customization opportunities.
