In this paper we present an ongoing research work dedicated to a Virtual-Reality-based product customization application development. The work is addressing the problem of flexible and quick customization of products from a great number of parts. Our application is an effective instrument that can be simultaneously used by two users for rapid assembly tasks, allowing engineers and designers to work collaboratively. Furthermore, it is directly connected to a manufacturing environment, which is able to produce the product right after customization. In the paper we describe the architecture of the application, our interaction and assembly techniques, and explain how the system can be integrated into a manufacturing environment.
