Lead time

General description

A lead time is the latency between the initiation and execution of a process. For example, the lead time between the placement of an order and delivery of a new car from a manufacturer (from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lead_time)


Specifics for Project CAxMan | Computer Aided Technologies for Additive Manufacturing

Description An ecosystem of Open Source of algorithmic toolkits for additive manufacturing will be established during the life time of the project, in order to enable sustainability of the marketplace after the project
Comments Economic sustainability Added value and impact Allow for more efficient design and process planning for additive manufacturing thus shortening the time to productions and facilitating distributed additive
 Periodic Reporting for period 1 - CAxMan (Computer Aided Technologies for Additive Manufacturing) Result description For the NUGEAR use case several potential improvements of the gearbox are address: Decrease the manufacturing cost and time; Allow perfect balance of nutating parts without manufacturability constraints
 From delocalisation to Globalisation 2.0 (re-shoring) Taxon description rise of the transport cost, the need for higher efficiency and productivity, the customer demand for greener product, the higher instability of raw material and energy prices and the shortening of the lead-time
