Integration between Additive Manufacturing and Value Chain Techniques and its role in Reducing costs

Author(s): Noor Yaseen Makhlef, Mohammed Abdelwahid Flayyih

The research aims to clarify the concept of additive manufacturing technology, its importance, advantages, tools and mechanism of work, as well as clarifying the concept of value chain technology and identifying its most important pillars, and then knowing the integration between the additive manufacturing technologies and the value chain through three stages (pre-production stage - production stage - post stage Production) and the extent of its impact on the cost, whether negatively or positively. The manufacture of prostheses in recent years is considered one of the important industries in Iraq, especially with the continued ignition of hotspots of armed conflicts and the occurrence of terrorist bombings, but it suffers from a large increase in costs. The authors reached a set of conclusions, the most important of which are: The application of additive manufacturing technology in integration with the value chain technology leads to the reduction of the value chain links through digital intervention (computer-aided design CAD and computer-assisted manufacturing CAM), which gave the production line many advantages, this interaction leads to granting the ability to produce Products with difficult engineering designs with less resources and time, which facilitates this in obtaining products with an appropriate price and quality.
