The market value of one-of-a-kind or low-volume metallic parts easily exceeds multi-billion dollars each year, considering new and legacy parts in aerospace or defense applications, tooling for mass-production, functional prototyping parts for new or legend cars, or patient-specific parts. Flexible manufacturing processes, such as additive manufacturing processes or incremental forming processes, provide exciting and promising means for high value-added manufacturing. One critical challenge however, is to be able to certify the process for a specific production how W31P4Q-14-2-0001one knows whether the just-made, one-of-a-kind part can perform the desired structural or other functional requirements.
