Environmental performance modeling for additive manufacturing processes


Sustainability means considering economic, social and environmental aspects. In the mechanical product design field, sustainability means thinking about eco-design and life cycle analysis, when the whole life cycle of the product (from raw material extraction to end of life) is concerned with environmental impacts. Nowadays, most of the manufacturing methods are driven only by money, and the environmental and social aspects are not taken into account. The goal of this paper is to propose an environmental assessment methodology of the manufacturing processes. In this methodology, all flows consumed and produced (material, fluids, electricity) are considered. A predictive model of flow consumption is defined from the CAD model of the product and the manufacturing program. The aim is to be able to minimize the environmental impacts of the manufacturing during the design stage. In this paper, the focus is put on additive manufacturing.
