    This report summarizes the main findings of the public part of the HYBRAM Research Benefit project carried out in 2016-2018, where the aim was to identify the main barriers for implementing Additive Manufacturing technologies in the Finnish manufacturing industry. The features and limitations of laser powder bed fusion, directed energy deposition and hybrid manufacturing technologies are analyzed to provide an overview of the capabilities of modern machines as well as to describe the limitations. The state-of-the-art of automation and integration capabilities of AM production systems are reported. Industrial demonstrator parts were studied to assess the applicability of AM as a production method from the design, technical feasibility, cost and quality point of views. The report also contains a chapter dedicated to explaining the dimensional analysis conceptual modeling (DACM) framework as a modeling approach for AM.
