It involves the fabrication of a geometric benchmark part and a methodology to control and identify the best performance of the process to reduce the variablity in the fabricated parts. The approach is demonstrated with a case study based on the direct laser sintering (DLS) process for prototyping using plastic powder. In the case study an identified set of six-sigma/ statistical process control tools is employed to determine and best tune factors affecting the desired outcomes of the built parts. © Springer-Verlag London Limited 2006.||Source Title:||International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/59266||ISSN:||02683768||DOI:||10.1007/s00170-005-0201-z|
