In today's automotive industy there is an increasing demand for VR technology, because it provides the possibility to switch from cost and time intensive physical mock up's (PMU) to digital mock up's (DMU). Furthermore the visualization and examination of simulation results is a very important aspect during the whole development cycle. Therefore tools are needed, which enable the users to work with DMU's, as well as simulation data sets in an efficient and intuitive way. In this paper we present the design of a VR user interface for evaluating simulation data sets. The design of the user interface is based on the basic intersction tasks (BIT's), introduced by Foley et. al.. This allows to generalize the results presented herein and to apply them to other domains.
