Nowadays many companies are thinking about using additive manufacturing in their production processes. Mostly a substitution of an existing subtractive production process is what comes to their mind at first. To give companies a clearer idea of the benefits by using additive manufacturing the presented approach results in portfolios, visualizing the impacts and therefore help companies in the orientation phase. On top of that, correlations between corresponding requirements, potentials and risks are shown, by means of dependencies. To structure requirements, potentials and risks the MITO model is adopted and presented. This approach to holistic process-oriented organizational development and output-oriented corporate management divides processes into the four sub-segments "Management, Input, Transformation and Output". Lastly an overview of currently available standards and guidelines is given, because the absence of appropriate documents is often an obstacle to use additive manufacturing. The availability of standards and guidelines differs strikingly from one industry sector to another. Therefore, the overview is structured in general valid documents and only specifically applicable documents.
