Streaming is a popular concept in the music and movie industry and has helped solve problems related to file distribution, storage capacity and intellectual property protection. In recent years, streaming has also become a research topic for the manufacturing sector, e.g., to collect data for predictive maintenance, advanced machine control concepts, or over-the-air updates. After initial studies have investigated the feasibility of streaming for additive manufacturing technologies, the question is how streaming will affect the process chain. In the music and movie industries, new business models and customer experiences have been created, leading to billion-dollar businesses and the creation of companies such as Netflix and Sportify. In this paper, the impact of streaming on the additive process chain is analyzed using Laser Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF). The process chain is modeled for different scenarios and its potential impact on the supply chain and future research opportunities are outlined.
