Integration of additive manufacturing (AM) into series production demands for comprehensive methods and tools. An agent-based process chain simulation framework is proposed to embed AM into a cyber-physical production system. A multi-dimensional evaluation supports the planning of AM process chains as well as their day-to-day operation. The detailed evaluation possibilities down to product and single simulation event level are illustrated by a case study, in which an automotive exterior part is produced using the multi-jet fusion technology. Multiple possible process chain configurations are assessed based on their modeled key performance indicators, summarized in a energy value stream map.
