Link3D’s Additive MES Series Part 4: Dispatching Production Units

Production Dispatching is another thing to look for in any manufacturing execution system and today we will share how this relates to Additive Manufacturing.




When parts are being scheduled for post-processing, finishing and quality inspection, it is important to understand:

  • All the asset time that will be consumed by each of job. With Link3D, a timestamp easily marks start and end time of when a part is processed at each station.
  • Projected scheduled time of arrival at those workstations.
  • Which operator or operators will be processing the job.
  • All the jobs that will be coming into the operator’s workstation.
  • The remaining operations on the job.


With Link3D, a timestamp easily marks the start and end time of when a part is processed at each station. By capturing the labor times, production yields, raw materials with lot and location information, your organization sees a real-time display of production analytics, allowing you to plan faster with more accuracy.
