The Joint Army, Navy, NASA, Air Force (JANNAF) Additive Manufacturing for Propulsion Applications Technical Interchange Meeting (TIM) will be held August 27-29 at the Jackson Center in Huntsville Alabama. Note that attendance is restricted to U.S. citizens qualified to receive unclassified, limited-distribution information. To qualify, the attendee must be employed by a DoD, DoE, or NASA facility, or with a DoD, DoE, or NASA contractor facility eligible for receipt of militarily-critical technical data.
New York, April 6, 2018: America Makes and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) have released for public review and comment a preliminary final draft of the AMSC Standardization Roadmap for Additive Manufacturing (Version 2.0) being developed by the America Makes & ANSI Additive Manufacturing Standardization Collaborative (AMSC). This is an update to version 1.0 of the document published in February 2017. Final publication of the document is targeted for June 2018.
This request specifically invites comments that represent critical revisions and/or needed clarifications on what is presented in the document. While all comments are welcome, the AMSC reserves the right to hold disposition of comments in reserve for a future iteration of the document if they cannot be addressed within the time available. This might include, for example, comments on the document's organization, or issues not addressed. Comments on the draft roadmap may be submitted to email@example.com by May 3, 2018. Use of a comment form is required to better manage and collate comments.
The draft roadmap and related materials may be downloaded as follows:
Formally launched in March 2016, the AMSC was established to coordinate and accelerate the development of industry-wide additive manufacturing standards and specifications consistent with stakeholder needs and thereby facilitate the growth of the additive manufacturing industry. The stakeholders include industry, academia, standards developing organizations, and the federal government. The group is not developing standards; rather, the aim of the draft roadmap is to identify standards needed and foster a more coherent and coordinated approach to standards development for additive manufacturing. Since the launch of phase 2 in September 2017, the AMSC working groups have been holding regular virtual meetings to update the document, evaluate progress to address the gaps identified in the earlier version, and identify potentially overlooked gaps. In addition, a polymers working group has expanded the document's content related to polymers, and a medical working group has refined the document's content from the perspective of the medical community.Additional information about the AMSC may be found at www.ansi.org/amsc. ###
ASME has established a Special Committee on Use of Additive Manufacturing for Pressure Retaining Equipment which is looking for subject matter experts and affected stakeholders. The Special Committee is part of the ASME Board on Pressure Technology Codes and Standards which owns and maintains the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (B&PVC) that industry and the Navy uses to design pressure containing components such as boilers, valves, and piping. Having DoD personnel participate in this Special Committee would allow the DoD to influence ASME's work to develop the rules and specifications that will govern how industry and the Navy design AM pressure retaining equipment.

Unfortunately, the Committee page does not have much information, see https://cstools.asme.org/csconnect/CommitteePages.cfm?Committee=101029283&_ga=2.81038993.764150895.1503671093-1192123798.1500409185 . When the Special Committee physically meets, it will meet during the ASME B&PVC meetings which occur four times a year, see https://cstools.asme.org/csconnect/FileUpload.cfm?View=yes&ID=28536 for upcoming meetings.
Policy changes? Process changes? Cultural changes? Standards and standardization? Funding and investment? Cybersecurity enhancements? Something else? What do you think?
What did you think of the special November-December 2016 Additive Manufacturing issue of Defense AT&L Magazine? Did the articles sufficiently cover the subject for newcomers? DoD issues and initiatves?
