Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing or AM, is the newest phenomenon in the technology world. The Navy is working to expand the naval supply chain and develop efficiencies through the utilization of AM, which has the ability to transform how the Navy produces aircraft and ship parts. In comparison to traditional manufacturing, AM has already proven to be more effective and provides agility. The NAVSUP WSS team of engineers and contracting specialists plan to have a draft AM guidebook completed by the end of this year that will advance technologies and innovation.
