lecture content:

The lecture presents the informational interrelationship required tor understandung the virtual product development process. For this purpose, an emphasis and focus will be placed on IT-systems used in the industrial sector as support for the process chain of virtual engineering:

  • Product Lifecycle Management refers to the entire lifecycle of the product, beginning with the concept phase up through disassembling and recycling.
  • CAx-Systems for the virtual product development allow the modeling of a digital product in regards to design, construction, manufacturing and maintenance.
  • Validation Systems allow the checking of the product in regard to static, dynamics, safety and ability.


learning target:

The goal of the lecture is to clarify the relationship between construction and validation operations through the usage of virtual prototypes and VR/AR/MR visualisation techniques in connection with PDM/PLM-systems. This will be achieved through an introduction to each particular system along with praxis-oriented exercises.
