How the GrabCAD Additive Manufacturing Platform Can Improve Your Production Workflow
What is an AMES?
A traditional manufacturing execution system (MES) helps the factory floor run smoothly by giving management insight into the production life cycle. Insights that help improve workflows, reduce costs, and bring products to market faster.
An additive manufacturing execution system (AMES) does the same – but for 3D printing technology.
Since the pandemic, global 3D printing awareness has increased to 71%. In addition, adoption of 3D printing technology has increased by 29%. And these rates aren’t slowing down. In fact, due to continued supply chain disruption, 3D printing technology is expected to be in even more demand.
As a result, manufacturing execution system software for additive technology is crucial now more than ever.
