Abstract

Successful entry of a product into the market can best occur if it can complete the cycle (product planning, conceptual design, detail design, process planning and production) for product development and realization in the shortest possible time and at the lowest cost, while maintaining very high product quality and reliability. In this respect, physical prototyping can prove to be very lengthy and expensive especially if modifications resulting from design reviews involve tool redesign. The availability and affordability of advanced computer technology has paved the way for increasing utilization of prototypes that are digital and created in computer-based environments, i.e. they are virtual as opposed to being physical. A prototype can be defined as “the first or original example of something that has been or will be copied or developed; it is a model or preliminary version.” Virtual Prototyping is becoming very advanced and may eventually dominate the product development process. It facilitates communication between different engineering disciplines during the early design process, and also provides quality illustrations that help "sell" the design. In this paper based on the modeling objectives and purposes, five broad classes of VP methods such as Visualization, Fit and interference of mechanical assemblies, Testing and verification of functions and performance, Evaluation of manufacturing and assembly operation, Human factor analysis are described.
