With focus on customer needs, this will be accomplished by aligning the digital and physical supply chains in additive manufacturing (AM) for industrial production and product development of metal and polymer based components for direct or re-manufacturing purposes.

DiSAM will demonstrate how AM and digitalization can increase flexibility while reducing the threshold and associated risks of introducing AM for the participating end users and support higher degree of digitalization in the AM-supply chain and the manufacturing industry. As DiSAM covers several of the major AM techniques, the project will provide a solid platform that can easily include other systems/technique in DiSAM to digitalize the supply chain of AM and push toward real print-on-demand. The entire industrial product development cycle will be demonstrated through a series of case studies selected by the participating companies, all having a strong pull for digitalized and integrated AM to reduce lead time, introduce simple customization, innovative products and traceability. 

The long term impact of the project will be increased adoption of digitalization in AM by the Swedish manufacturing industry with increased flexibility and competitiveness as a result.
