Layered manufacturing (LM) is emerging as a new manufacturing technology that can enhance the scope of manufacturing. One of the essential tasks in LM is process planning. This paper defines, conceptualizes and reviews the literature in this emerging area. The paper concludes with future projections on the possible directions of research in this area.
