Industrial Additive Manufacturing technologies are increasingly being employed in manufacturing environments, yet there has been little consideration of these in terms of manufacturing systems. This paper explores the important concept of control for Industrial Additive Manufacturing Systems, drawing upon data achieved in twelve case studies to identify four feasible control architectures. Using an abductive approach, this paper contributes to a recognized knowledge gap in operations and manufacturing management research.
