D. Life Cycle Analysis regarding the environmental impact

3D printing promises to decrease the industrial footprint in the world. Efficient use of materials, less transportation, longer lasting and better designed products are expected benefits.

A Life Cycle Analysis of the different metal additive manufacturing methodologies will provide a baseline for the environmental impact.

The demonstrator components in the ManSYS project will serve as a starting point for the research on the environmental impact.. The report will also include the outputs of the virtual manufacturing assessment, which, combined with a cost and lead time study, will result in a complete sustainability analysis.

Due date: the fourth quarter of 2015.
