Abstract
The topic of spare parts is always challenging for operations, with the need to balance service provision with cost minimization for the full lifecycle of the product. This chapter provides a detailed discussion on the application of 3D printing for the manufacture of spare parts. It examines the characteristics which make 3D printing a viable proposition, and highlights the many constraints which much be considered when using 3D printing both now and in the future.
