Abstract:Successful product design requires intensive communication between all stakeholders of the product or service in the very beginning of the development process. In this stage of the development, often communication is inefficient due to the absence of a prototype. We propose the use of a synthetic environment as a methodology and tool to support communication about a concept design among stakeholders; e.g., designers, end-users, and manufacturers. A case study with industrial partners revealed that a low-cost, easy accessible setup, consisting of haptic and visual simulation only, was sufficient for a realistic evaluation of a product and to provide meaningful information to improve its design.
