Metal Additive Experts in Demand Executive Summary

Metal Additive Experts in Demand Executive Summary-1.jpgMetal AM is not only allowing manufacturers to increase speed to market, but it’s also helping them produce stronger and lighter parts, improve efficiency, reduce waste, along with reducing lead time. To maximize this potential, it is critical that the existing workforce is trained in AM technologies – whether through degree programs, engineering applications, development experience or AM experience in a project-based environment.

To meet the current and future needs of the AM metals industry, SME Business Intelligence partnered with the SME Additive Manufacturing Community to create a Competency Model with in-demand job descriptions for metal AM positions, along with the knowledge, skills and abilities for the roles/functions that make up the metal additive manufacturing team.

This Competency Model helps with the development of job descriptions that can be tailored to specific industries and applications as well as curriculums and job-training programs and is part of the process for ensuring consistency for engineers and technologists pursuing careers in metal AM.
