Tiivistelmä

Additive manufacturing (AM, 3Dprinting) means novel manufacturing technologies and the use of digital models to build up an object additively, making it fundamentally different from subtractive manufacturing. This novel manufacturing approach does not concern only technologies, but it also has implications on the firms’ supply chains. Supply chain innovations related to AM deserve further research, particularly among small and medium-sized firms (SMEs). This exploratory interview-based study reveals practical changes in supply chains and requirements for AM-driven supply chain innovations in SMEs. To be leveraged fully, AM needs complementary supply chain innovations in the business processes, technology and structure.
