Software Development for Additive Manufacturing

Digital transformation has become necessary for manufacturing companies to compete amid worker and supply shortages. One of the most important actions to manufacturing success is moving to Industry 4.0. No-code software can help manufacturers build apps quickly that can leverage and integrate these technologies.

However, developing manufacturing software from scratch can be extremely complex and requires a tremendous amount of code to be written. No-code application development can solve this problem. 

At 3dpmaven we utilize no-code application development to faster develop and implement a solution. 

Gartner forecasts that 65% of all app development by 2024 will be done through no-code/low-code tools.

Here are some examples of how no-code for manufacturing can specifically benefit various processes. 

Factory inspection

Factory inspection is at the heart of quality control and improvements for any manufacturing company. Factory inspection reports help in enhancing productivity by identifying issues, decreasing defect rates, and bringing down rework and waste. Therefore, the data needs to be as accurate, rich, and insightful as possible to make sure that all these bases are covered. 


With no-code such factory inspection reports can be easily created.

Inventory and procurement management

Inventory and procurement management have a huge impact on bottom-line profits. Having a proper system in place not only enables a smooth functioning of any manufacturing process but also brings down costs drastically. Your entire inventory can be optimized through a customized inventory management system, created through no-code without a single line of code.

Asset management and maintenance

Effective asset management is the key to establishing any smart factory. Making the right decision when it comes to choosing asset management software is very important, especially if you are looking to get ahead of the recent digital disruption. 

No-code for manufacturing allows you to create an online asset repository that has immeasurable benefits for your company. With automation, you can manage the maintenance of equipment through pre-configured preventive maintenance schedules with inbuilt reminders and notifications. This leads to the minimization of emergency repairs and reduced operational costs.

Compliance tracker

Manufacturing compliance is of the utmost importance to make sure that your company is meeting the expected operational standards. Having systems in place that understand various compliance procedures and communicate information in real time is a must-have for any manufacturing company. 

No-code for manufacturing empowers companies to upgrade and accelerate project quality by automating quality assurance processes. Implementing a compliance tracker tool within your applications leads to enhanced on-site and remote quality assurance with issue detection, prediction, tracking, and resolution. You can also route workflows based on type, severity, or other parameters and stay up to date with the status of reported issues at any time.

Health and Safety

The health and safety of workers and resources are non-compromisable for any manufacturing company. By actively using EHS checklist apps, you can reduce the chances of any accidents. Incident reporting apps created through no-code for manufacturing also let field staff report any issues while capturing GPS location along with video or images. It also leads to speeding up incident resolutions by connecting the right people at the right time ensuring immediate attention.

Shop Floor Management

A shop floor in manufacturing involves numerous aspects including equipment to employee scheduling. Therefore, it is critical to keep everything in order. Without effective planning, errors are very likely to occur. 

Enable smooth shift handovers for workers with access to all the information they need. Effectively arrange jobs on the shop floor, track employee activity, and ensure smart scheduling of activity.
