Interdisziplinary product development - Virtual reality
Interdisziplinäre Produktentwicklung - Virtual-Reality Anwendungen in QM Prozessen
For an application of quality management (QM) methods, such as the Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), in the field of complex mechatronic systems, it is necessary that every member of the interdisciplinary team has been introduced to the visualisation of the mechatronic system. By using Virtual Reality (VR) in connection with QM methods, it becomes possible to provide general information for the team to improve the application of QM methods considerably. With its realistic stereoscopic visualisiation of parts, assemblies and complete systems in combination with the interaction in all six degrees of freedom, VR is particularly suitable for illustrating the complex behaviour of mechatronic systems. This article describes goals and first results of the current research at the Chemnitz University of Technology.
