Today, an essential challenge lies in a holistic as well as integrated assessment and selection of an adequate manufacturing technology bearing in mind a tailored product design along with a further optimized material selection, particularly with respect to the emerging potentials of the increasingly industrialized application of additive manufacturing (AM). Therefore, this contribution presents a scientifically detailed view on a methodological set-based product and production engineering approach dealing with technical, economic and ecological aspects in an aggregated, tool-based manner.
