Model Advances Understanding of Incorporating 3D Printing Into Supply Chains

Getting spare parts where they need to go in a quick, reliable way is a logistical challenge for military and industrial supply chains. Researchers from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and NC State have developed a computational model to help determine how best to incorporate additive manufacturing technologies into these spare parts supply chains. Brandon McConnell, co-author of a paper on the new model, is an assistant research professor in NC State’s Edward P. Fitts Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering.
