As the global economy adapts to several 'shocks', this presentation discusses the potential for Additive Manufacturing to drive systemic changes in where and how goods are manufactured. We will review the ways in which international supply chains are changing and critically evaluate the ways in which AM can contribute,or even drive, change. Different forms of supply chain configurations are emerging - such as decentralised or distributed. This presentation will focus on distributed manufacturing and review the opportunities and challenges facing AM as an enabling technology. It will end with details of current research being conducted bythe University of Bristol on agent-based distributed networks.
