July 10th Lunch & Learn: Accelerating Decision-Making with 3D Printing: Early Fit, Form, and Function Validation

Ways of Working

This presentation will demonstrate how 3D printing can be leveraged in project management to check fit, form, and function within days, much earlier than conventional manufacturing allows. By using 3D printing, stakeholders can physically interact with parts and make informed decisions about the finished product very early in the process. This approach not only accelerates the project timeline but also enhances stakeholder engagement and decision-making. This topic aligns with the Technical Project Management aspect of the PMI Talent Triangle, emphasizing the use of innovative tools and techniques to improve project outcomes.
