A completely computer supported product development process is nowadays regarded as the key to increasing competitiveness. Virtual product development is a new approach to achieving this aim. In this context, virtual refers to continuous digital product development over all phases and across company boundaries and locations. The goal of the main "Integrated Virtual Product Development" (iViP) project sponsored by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research in Germany (BMBF) is therefore the development and introduction into industry of hightech software products for end-to-end virtual product development. This project has been divided up into six thematic project clusters. The projects in clusters 1 and 2 deal mainly with infrastructural foundations for system and data integration within the iViP project as a whole. In other project clusters, cross-industry and cross-company applications are being developed which are based on the results of clusters 1 and 2 and can be integrated in the iViP platform. The virtual test bench is a subproject in cluster 4 (Building and Validation of Virtual Products) and is described in more detail in this article. Detailed information on other subprojects and the iViP project as a whole can be found under [IVIP].
