A CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK FOR THE CERTIFICATION OF LASER POWDER BED FUSION PROCESS QUALITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS FOR AEROSPACE APPLICATIONS
Keywords:additive manufacturing, aerospace, certification, qualification, laser powder bed fusion, process planning, standardisation
This study aims to develop a conceptual framework for the certification of laser powder bed fusion quality management systems for aerospace applications. This research is structured around industry standards and best practices. The developed framework consists of a process map that identifies the required processes and activities for the realisation of parts. Industry standards and best practices are referenced to form standard operating procedures. The framework was presented to subject matter experts within the industry and academia, whose feedback was positive.
