Product development processes dictate product
innovation and quality, ultimately translating into
profitability, customer loyalty and access to new
markets. Digital mockups:
Support PLM by eliminating the need for costly and
time consuming physical prototypes.
Allow description of product usually in 3D for its
Allows designing and configuration complex products
and also their validation.
To have enough important knowledge of
To replace physical prototypes with virtual
ones using 3D computer graphics.
Use of light weight 3D models allowing enggs to
visualize, analyze and interact with large amounts of
product data in real time.
Direct interface between digital mockups and PDM
Active digital mockup technology uniting visualization
of assembly with measurement , analyzing,
simulation, design and redesign.
Practice processes available through
Activity processes available through
Reduce time to market by identifying
potential issues earlier in the design process.
Reduce product development costs by
minimizing the number of physical prototypes
that need to be built.
Increase product quality by allowing a
greater number of design alternatives to be
investigated before a final one is chosen.
