Abstract: Abstract. Given that Micro and Nano Technologies (MNTs) is still an emerging field, it is important to adopt a tool for evaluating the maturity of MNT-based products and the production processes enabling their manufacture. In particular, as a risk assessment tool, it could help both the pace of technological adoption and the successful exploitation of these technologies. In this context, the objective of the research presented is to describe a methodology for assessing the maturity of MNTs. The paper also demo… Show more

“…In this context maturity is understood as the assessed development status of a PPC methodology at a specific time in relation to phase-dependent requirements on them [16]. The below maturity scale was inspired by the concept of Technology Readiness Levels (TRL) -which was developed by NASA [17] -and the Technology Maturity Assessment (TMA) according to Brousseau et al [18].…”

“…However, technologies are not always mature enough to be used effectively and efficiently for manufacturing tasks. Especially emerging technologies might need a further development until they can be integrated in the existing production environment [5,6]. For this reason, companies have to evolve resources, capabilities, competencies and corecompetencies for the respective technology.…”

“…However, potentially available technologies are not always mature enough to be used efficiently for manufacturing tasks [10]. This is especially valid for emerging technologies [9], which might need a further development until they can be integrated in the existing manufacturing environment [10]. However, developing a technology means building up know-how, which can be very time-consuming and expensive.…”

“…This technological evolution can overall be described as a technology life cycle [7] [8], which incorporates individual technology cycles [9] such as increasing maturity of a technology over time [6]. However, potentially available technologies are not always mature enough to be used efficiently for manufacturing tasks [10]. This is especially valid for emerging technologies [9], which might need a further development until they can be integrated in the existing manufacturing environment [10].…”
