Strategy for AM Adoption

Having a comprehensive strategy for the introduction of Additive Manufacturing into your business is essential for successful adoption. Protean Advanced’s independent consultants can help you to develop a strategy that is realistic and that will add real value to your operations. As part of this, we will consider which technologies are most suitable for your requirements and what infrastructure and investment will be required to robustly implement them, as well as the skills that will be required within your organisation.  

"Implementing AM Is not just about understanding the technical challenges - you need a robust business case too "

Project Management

Our consultants are highly experienced in the delivery of large, complex projects using Additive Manufacturing. We have supported a range of clients in planning and delivering ambitious projects at all stages of technology readiness.

Opportunity Identification

For the right components, Additive Manufacturing can be truly disruptive. Being able to rapidly identify candidate components based on their size, material, function and cost can save time and money. Protean Advanced can support you by evaluating BOMs and product ranges to develop new manufacturing strategies and solutions.

Identifying suitable opportunities for applying Additive Manufacturing is a skilled task that requires a deep understanding of both the technical challenges and the commercial implications. Selecting the right opportunities to pursue is especially mportant when you are starting your journey to AM adoption; choosing the wrong components to develop can damage confidence in the technology and reduce organisational engagement. Through our comprehensive knowledge of AM applications and technology, Protean Advanced can help your business to identify and prioritise opportunities for the successful adoption of AM.
