Abstract

Additive Manufacturing is changing the structure and dynamics of supply chains, influencing their ability to cope with disturbances, i.e. supply chain resilience. To date, no empirical research has investigated how using this technology influences resilience in a supply chain. Hence, the focus of this research is to investigate this knowledge gap in an industry context using survey method. The results of this research will help managers and decision-makers to determine which resilience practices to capitalize on, when using Additive Manufacturing technology, in order to better provide services and products in their supply chains.
