3D printing, generically known as Additive Manufacturing, is not only disruptive to the prototyping and manufacturing industries, it is disruptive to the design process itself! The integration of mechanical packaging, electronic componentry, and software development into a cohesive project requires a continuous rebalancing of priorities as challenges arising in one area impose constraints on other areas.

Project managers everywhere are being asked to produce better, faster, and cheaper results! An Agile approach may or may not be the right answer. Meanwhile, mechanical design has historically been treated as a serial process often involving extended and expensive lead times associated with tooling.

Additive Manufacturing enables an Agile approach to multi-functional projects. Join Lisa and Dave for a brief journey through the history of Additive Manufacturing (also known as 3D printing) and an exploration of how multi-functional project managers may use available and affordable rapid-prototyping processes to reduce risk and increase likelihood of overall project success.
