User- and task-oriented model for product development

The content of the research project is the general description of an extended VR model for product development. This includes not only the product but also its context. Only on this completed basis the requirements for the information-technical implementation are defined. Thus, the interrelationships of product model, product behavior, life phases and context as well as the user- and task-oriented methods and tools in VR development environments that are adapted to them are investigated. The focus is on the product developer as user. Furthermore, the actors in the area of the use of the product as well as the manufacturing planning and the manufacturing itself are considered.
