ASTM International, a global standards organization, has released the new Strategic Guide: Additive Manufacturing In-Situ Technology Readiness report. This comprehensive report is the culmination of the second Specialty Workshop series organized by the ASTM Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence (AM CoE) – sponsored by NASA in collaboration with America Makes, held in June 2022.

“The report embodies a comprehensive landscape assessment, detailed workshop analyses, targeted expert interviews, and crucial reviews by specialists, all meticulously orchestrated to create an insightful, high-value resource that the industry can tap into,” said Dr. Mohsen Seifi, ASTM International vice president of global advanced manufacturing programs. “The strategic insights will also guide ASTM International and its members to bridge gaps in existing standards, and pioneer new standardization in the field.”

The report aims to shed light on the current gaps and challenges within the field of in-situ technology. By providing an in-depth analysis of the initial landscape and the outcomes of the two-day workshop, the report identifies potential solutions and offers actionable plans for key topical areas in in-situ technology.

“NASA was pleased to support this important effort,” said Doug Wells, deputy technical fellow at NASA. “The insights from the workshop and the detailed analysis of the AM CoE captured in this report are significant. The report is influential in guiding the Agency in the development of methodologies and policies for the implementation of in-situ monitoring technologies into the qualification and certification framework of additively manufactured hardware. We look forward to continuing engagement with this community to bring to fruition all the promises of in-situ monitoring to revolutionize the use and acceptance of additive manufacturing in critical applications.”

“The strategic guide that the team has compiled will serve as a beneficial resource for members of the AM community for years to come. The data and findings are a great example of collaboration to promote common understanding. They deliver an approach that advances our ability to leverage monitoring methods and digital data and analytics for AM qualification and certification”, said Dr. Brandon Ribic, technology director at America Makes.

ASTM International welcomes feedback, suggestions, and information about ongoing initiatives that address the call to action outlined in the report. Future participation is welcome related to these topics, as member involvement will play a crucial role in furthering the advancements of in-situ technology in additive manufacturing.

“The release of this strategic report and guide represents a significant milestone towards the industry’s maturation,” said Seifi.  “It consolidates the collective knowledge and expertise of industry leaders, paving the way for innovation and progress in additive manufacturing industrialization while suggesting tangible solutions to the industry’s core challenges.”
