Technology Adoption Models for 3DP
- 143 Downloads
3D printing technologies are well-established as offering unique capabilities that may benefit the automotive industries, but empirical evidence has highlighted that only a partial adoption has been achieved by Original Equipment Manufacturers and their suppliers. However, the review of the relevant literature reflects that no work has been done to explore the level of 3D printing adoption and the specific barriers enabling appropriate adoption within the automotive supply chains. This chapter considers the technology adoption model and factors that inhibit 3D printing adoption; in doing so, both technical and non-technical barriers are discussed.
