Prof. Som Sekhar Bhattacharyya’s co-authored article on ‘Study of emerging avenues in supply chain resilience; the case of integration of additive manufacturing with spare parts procurement’ has been published in Emerald Insight. This research tries to study the impacts of adopting additive manufacturing (AM) for spare parts procurement, specifically in the context of supply chain resilience (SCR), especially regarding efficient spare parts inventory management. Furthermore, key narratives in the adoption of AM toward better SCR have been explored. The results indicate that AM could be a suitable tool to reduce dependence on original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) for spare parts procurement. Data analysis also revealed that AM adoption might lead to significant cost and lead time reduction. Designs protected as intellectual properties (IP), substantive post-processing requirements and material compatibility were revealed to be barriers in adoption.
