Abstract [en]

Purpose - The purpose of this study is to investigate whether the use of an external expert, called facilitator in this study, can assist a company with little previous knowledge within the field of Rapid Prototyping, called RP in this study, first to determine if they would benefit from RP and if so, find which components that are suitable for RP, and second to find the optimum RP method and RP service bureau. Design/methodology/approach - The study was made as action research, where the researcher actively participated in the project acting as the facilitator. The company involved had a clear ambition to make their prototyping more effective and wanted to know if RP could be useful in this ambition. Findings - The results show that the facilitator's assistance was useful to the company. Within two weeks, a component was selected, a suitable RP method was found and a RP service bureau was contacted. Without this extra expertise, the company could have difficulties identifying the internal needs, the demands to put to the RP method and to choose suitable method and contractor. By acting in the company's interest, the facilitator ensures an objective selection of RP method and that it is optimized for the current situation. Originality/value - This study is not on finding a new method for selecting the best RP method. The main objective for this study is to find a way to make these selection methods, and also the RP technology, available to companies new to the technology while the company's interest is kept in focus.
