Session 1 — The Business Case

Session 1 — The Business Case

Concept
Digital Spare Parts is a concept where the spare parts and the related manufacturing data are stored and transferred in digital form. The spare parts are manufactured using 3D printing, according to need, preferably close to the end users premises.
3D Printing
3D printing, or additive manufacturing (AM), has the potential to fundamentally restructure industrial processes from the bottom up and underpin the transition from traditional to digital manufacturing.
Inflection point
Additive manufacturing has existed for some time and is being adopted in more and more applications. The critical question is to determine the inflection point, when technological advancements and adoption rates converge to make 3D printing a mainstream process as opposed to selective or niche applications.
Impact on industries
The changes will impact different industries, companies, and countries based on their unique characteristics and economies. However, change is coming, and the displacement resulting from 3D printing we are already starting to see will become more prevalent over time.
Catalyst
Some industries have already been disrupted. One example is in the medical device industry. For example, nowadays 98% of all hearing aids worldwide are being manufactured using 3D printing. AM is a catalyst that will fundamentally change the manufacturing sector and cascade through all vertical industries, impacting storage, shipping, logistics, and transportation.

Session 2 — Digital Spare Parts Supply Chains Explained

Session 2 — Digital Spare Parts Supply Chains Explained

Additive manufacturing (AM) is the standard term for the process of creating parts by joining materials layer by layer directly from 3D model data (ISO 2020), therefore it is often synonymously referred to as 3D printing.
A digital file is created in computer-aided design (CAD) software and stored in a file format from which the 3D information can be sliced into hundreds or thousands of 2D layers. The printer understands the file and prints the slices as layers on top of each other and produces the three-dimensional object.
This session is an easy-to-understand introduction to Supply Chains based on 3D printing.
Underlying Technologies
Industrial AM Supply Chains comprise Design and Engineering Services, Secure Storage & Transfer, and Manufacturing Services. A short, non-technical explanation.
Identifying the Part
To fully utilise the advantages and capabilities of AM, manufacturers have to identify exactly if, when and where to apply AM for the benefit of their Parts Parts business.
Materials Strategy
The materials used in 3D printing are mostly plastics, metals or ceramics. The chemical and physical characteristics of the materials and their bonds vary. The choice of materials has increased rapidly enabling ever wider applications.
Production Strategy
Manufacturers need to asses how the technology can enable innovation and add value to overall operations. Instead of finding products that fit the technology, make the technology fit the product and business model. 

Session 3 — Secure Data, Standards & Certification

Session 3 — Secure Data, Standards & Certification

Each of these topics is the lifeblood of AM Supply Chains.
Many major industries rely on one another and tend to overlap when it comes to resources and supply chain partnerships.
Standards & Certification
Due to strict certification and regulatory guidelines that these industries impose, the adoption of AM has been thoughtful and deliberate. But through accelerating standardisation and certification, its possible to bridge the gap and remain relevant.
Secure Data
The data intensive nature of the 3D printing industry requires manufacturers face a new set of challenges. How can all of that data be not only stored but also freely flowing in order to be at its optimum level of usefulness? The challenge is to transfer printing files and manufacturing data in an end-to-end security chain.

Session 4 — Digital Warehouses & Manufacturing on Demand

Session 4 — Digital Warehouses & Manufacturing on Demand

1. Digital Warehouse (DW)
Instead of stocking a physical warehouse with quantities of spare parts that may never be used, manufacturers are digitally storing the files for the when/if scenarios. The DW, or the commitment to digital inventory, is an ever-evolving concept that manufacturers, production facilities and supply chain managers are adopting to increase efficiency and lower overhead costs.
Components of Digital Warehouse of AM Spare Parts
>Supply Network
Internal capacities or external suppliers
>Certification of Parts
Perform test prints on chosen parts with internal capacities and external suppliers
Prepare the measurement and certification processes
>Agile ERP System
Customised Digital Inventory
Order and Supplier Management
2. Manufacturing on Demand
Digital on-demand manufacturing with AM can go even further if you couple digital inventories with a distributed production network. Through specialised software that helps create a digital bridge between production partners, companies can easily and securely share 3D files and data with suppliers and subcontractors. This way allows them to 3D print items not only when they or their customers need them.

Session 5 - Lessons learned from Digital Spare Parts Use Cases

Session 5 - Lessons learned from Digital Spare Parts Use Cases

The Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul markets are big and transition from conventional sourcing to on demand AM will impact all vertical markets. Contemplating the next steps to take, Supply Chain Managers and innovation Officers will have to answer the big Q: How do we prepare to simultaneously meet the demands of current clients and unlock the potential for future innovation?
Compelling Use Cases
In this session well exploring the current state of digital Spare Parts across a range of industries, sector by sector. These well documented use cases provide an in-depth understanding of the concept of digital Spare Parts. 

Session 6 — Roadmap Digital Spare Parts Management

Session 6 — Roadmap Digital Spare Parts Management

Defining key performance indicators as targets that help you measure progress against your strategic objectives. The Roadmap is divided into 4 Building Blocks:
1. Disrupting factors
Which inside/outside elements will accelerate change, have a long-lasting effect and will alter Supply Chains significantly?
2. Business Strategy
What is the existing playing field in the relevant industries? What is the impact of the Business Strategy on Spare parts Management?
3. Tactical planning & Future Business Models
How to align strategy and the operational process? How to timely change the strategic focus?
4. Operational Planning
How to continuously improving processes? How to define the framework of daily decisions, using your insights and decision-making skills? Add a different value to Spare Parts Strategies and Management — to increase competitiveness in local and global markets.
