Abstract:The goal of this research is ‘construct a model to assess the impact of the transition from conventional manufacturing (CM) to AM on the life cycle costs of one-off parts within radar systems at Thales Hengelo’. With the use of the model, the research can answer the following research question: ´How can Thales Hengelo use additive manufacturing, in order to decrease life cycle cost of one-off parts?’ With the use of the model, important developments regarding additive manufacturing can be identified as well as important parameters. By monitoring and investigating these developments and characteristics Thales can determine the potential of other parts.
