The influence of different microstructural attributes on the material properties such strength, hardness and residual stress or other physical properties are very well understood. During the manufacturing of mechanical parts utilized in industries such as energy, aerospace or biomedical, the effect of the processing in term of thermal and mechanical loading is very important as it is directly influencing the microstructure evolution and the properties. It is important to understand how the manufacturing process such as high precision machining will affect first the microstructure and therefore the part properties. In this work, we propose the Materials Affected Manufacturing (MAM). It is a new paradigm helping to understand the interaction between the manufacturing process, materials microstructure attributes and the properties.
