Virtual and Physical Mock-Ups - New Tools and Methods for the Innovative Product Creation Process.
In: 9° Seminário Internacional de Alta Tecnologia, pp. 97-120, [Book Section]

Abstract

An efficient product creation process is characterized by a high degree in computer aid. To meet all the functional and esthetical requirements of the product to be developed, various specific methods and tools in process networks are applied. In particular modelling, visualization and information systems are used to derive and analyze prototypes and mock-ups of the entire product or selected parts of it. These prototypes can be virtual mock-ups as well as physical mock-ups, generated e.g. with rapid prototyping techniques. The application area of these prototypes and their purpose of use depend on the development phase or level of development of the product and the attended conclusion by the prototype. The fast change between virtual and physical prototypes and their reference to the integrated product model are thereby a crucial factor. This contribution presents the methods and tools of virtual and rapid prototyping technology and their use in industrial applications in the product development processes. Furthermore development trends like adaptive prototypes are explained and its future application potentials are discussed.
