Additive Manufacturing as a Catalyst for Supply Chain Resilience: An Empirical Analysis

Sun, November 19, 10:00 to 11:30am, Atlanta Marriott Marquis, Floor: Marquis Level, M303


This study investigates the potential of additive manufacturing (AM) technology in enhancing supply chain resilience (SCR) during periods of disruption. The impact of adopting AM on SCR is influenced by various factors, including institutional response, technological capabilities, manufacturing capabilities, and supplier relationships. The relationships between the variables were examined using structural equation modeling. The findings of the study confirm that AM technology has the ability to improve SCR, challenging the traditional perspective that institutional experience is the primary driver of preparedness. This research offers practical implications for managers seeking to enhance their organization's resilience within a dynamic business environment.
