Phase 2: In depth analysis
The pilot project continues with a more detailed and technical analysis. The requirements analysis takes external factors into account, such as corrosion or chemical resistance. Additionally, various 3D print strategies, redesign analysis, and material selection are extensively reviewed during this stage.
During this analysis, a general layout of the project plan is formed as well as a rough estimation of lead time. The project plan provides an overview of the steps required for the project to succeed. This information provides the CEAD specialists the possibility to calculate the future hourly costs for in house printing. Finally, the in depth analysis concludes with a second go/no-go moment.
