AMSC Standardization Roadmap for AM Seeks Comments
America Makes, the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute, and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) have released for public review and comment a preliminary final draft of the AMSC Standardization Roadmap for Additive Manufacturing (Version 1.0) being developed by the America Makes & ANSI Additive Manufacturing Standardization Collaborative (AMSC). Final publication of the document is targeted for February 2017.
This request specifically invites comments that represent critical revisions and/or needed clarifications on what is presented in the document and are due by January 11, 2017.
The full preliminary final draft of the roadmap is available on the ANSI website. Be sure to use the comment form on this site to submit your comments.
Formally launched in March 2016, the AMSC was established to coordinate and accelerate the development of industry-wide additive manufacturing standards and specifications consistent with stakeholder needs and thereby facilitate the growth of the additive manufacturing industry. The stakeholders include industry, academia, standards developing organizations (including the Metal Powder Industries Federation), and the federal government. The group is not developing standards; rather, the aim of the draft roadmap is to identify standards needed and foster a more coherent and coordinated approach to standards development for additive manufacturing.
