Additive manufacturing (AM) is not fully embraced for structurally critical parts in aerospace, maritime, and oil and gas; as the processes and material qualification programs from credible classification and certification societies are not fully developed to our knowledge. DNVGL is one of the world’s largest classification and certification society, has developed a systematic approach with basis in the technology qualification process described in DNVGL-RP-A203 to document that a technology is qualified according to DNVGL-SE-0160.When an adequate set of acceptance criteria and limits does not exist for a technology, then technology qualification with requirements validation enables the delivery of equipment, devices and facilities that are in demand, as well as the operation of these in the manner that is needed. Technology qualification entails developing and substantiating the acceptance criteria for products and the limits to operations which will assure the reliable, defined functionality. This poster will describe steps required in the technology qualification process.
