Modularity, product variety, production volume, and component sourcing: theorizing beyond generic prescriptions

F Salvador, C Forza, M Rungtusanatham
2002 Journal of Operations Management  
However, modularity is not a dichotomous property of a product, as different types of modularity can be embedded into a product family architecture.  ...  Insights from these empirical generalizations are subsequently developed into two propositions explaining why and under what conditions these empirical generalizations might hold for a product family outside  ...  Finally, we thank Jack Meredith and three anonymous referees for their insightful comments to earlier drafts of this paper.  ...

Printing industry offshoring: perspectives from US based printers

Sandra Rothenberg, Ron Hira, Zhi Tang
2008 Strategic Outsourcing  
To respond to the threat of offshore outsourcing, printers are trying to either focus on "safe" products, introduce new services, or offshore themselves.  ...  This limitation is common for researchers of the printing industry where little public data are available.  ...  A major reason for the contraction is lower demand for traditional print products.  ...

Compounding Composites from Raw Materials with Extrusion Directly on 3D Printer

O. Rundbäck Martinsson, A. Nordin, J. Tavčar
2022 Proceedings of the Design Society  
AbstractThe materials most commonly used in 3D-printers are in a filament form. This is a barrier for users who want to have new types of filaments with different material compositions.  ...  The positive result is opening the path to a more accessible composites for both researchers and home producers.  ...  There is a plan to construct a modular screw, based around a threaded (or hexagonal) rod, where the different parts can be replaced.  ...

Toward autonomous additive manufacturing: Bayesian optimization on a 3D printer

James R. Deneault, Jorge Chang, Jay Myung, Daylond Hooper, Andrew Armstrong, Mark Pitt, Benji Maruyama
2021 MRS bulletin  
Coupled with a pervasive lack of feedback mechanisms in 3D printers, this has inhibited the advancement and adoption of additive manufacturing (AM) technologies as a mainstream manufacturing approach.  ...  Materials exploration and development for three-dimensional (3D) printing technologies is slow and labor-intensive.  ...  As mentioned previously, we employed a BO algorithm to plan experiments, which supplied new input conditions for the AM ARES printer toward the campaign objective.  ...
