Abstract or Summary
  • Manufacturing exists as a stronghold for continuous growth and development of economies, a trend that is likely to continue as the demand for commodities and products grow. Manufacturing drives innovation and productivity in developed nations, as well as promoting economic stability and development in developing nations. However, manufacturing activities pose a significant demand on the environment (e.g., using resources), which can be accounted for and reduced through the application of sustainable manufacturing principles to analyze and improve the performance of manufacturing systems. Additive manufacturing is a rapidly emerging alternative to conventional manufacturing, including subtractive processes, often attributed to its claim for sustainable product development, e.g., reduced cost, reduced energy and material use, and the distributed production of tailored consumer products. However, these claims remain unsubstantiated for high volume production since benefits are product-specific and vary extensively. Hence, to ensure industrial efficiency with the growth of additive manufacturing, informed design and manufacturing decision making tools integrated with life cycle product and process data are required. Thus, the purpose of this research is to enable energy efficient design for additive manufacturing through 1) cradle-to-gate characterization of the environmentalperformance of additive manufacturing processes to identify the key contributors to environmental impacts, 2) characterization and modeling of additive manufacturing process energy use, and 3) development and demonstration of a design decision support tool for evaluation of additively manufactured products and additive manufacturing processes. This research enables systemic characterization of additive manufacturing process inputs and outputs, and associated environmental impacts. Modeling of additive manufacturing process time and energy use was driven by product design and process data and information, and supported the development of a design decision support tool. The tool is capable of informing designers about process energy consumption based on the key interrelationships between design and manufacturing parameters, determined under this research. Underpinning models within the tool encompass four commercially available additive manufacturing processes. This research demonstrates that informed decision making for additive manufacturing can support sustainable product development.
