Workshop Purpose

Establish a strategic path forward regarding needed AM data management.  Build consensus between industry, government, and academia as to the specific objectives, challenges, & approaches to be pursued in order to accelerate AM part deployment and reduce the time and cost associated with AM process qualification. Inform NIST programmatic strategy in AM data science. (This may include implementation strategy, building of partnerships & alliances, and management concepts.) 
Registration is now closed. If you would still like register for this event please contact Bill Frazier at frazierwe@gmail.com

Fundamental Tenets

  • The time and cost associated with AM process qualification and part certification is a major impediment to the widespread use of AM for critical metallic components.
  • The identification, generation, curation, and analysis of digital AM data across the AM product lifecycle can significantly reduce the cost and time associated with AM product deployment
  • The power of AM data can only be fully realized if the data is findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable (FAIR).
  • Open AM data management standards are required to enable FAIR AM data attributes.

Workshop Structure

The workshop will be executed over a two-day period.  The workshop will kick off with a plenary session consisting of SME addressing the Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability, and Reusability (FAIR) of AM data.  Participants will be divided into Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability, and Reusability working group(s) and spend approximately 2 - 4 hours addressing questions associated with implementing FAIR from an end user perspective. Each working group will be led by a NIST employee and Co-led with an industry partner.
