Virtual Realtiy Applications in Manufacturing

Manufacturing industries will benefit from VR applications in several ways. The use of virtual reality to build prototypes will reduce the costs of finished products. Physical prototypes can be expensive to change, but virtual prototypes can be changed quickly and inexpensively. The traditional design tools of manufacturing, CAD and CAM, can be significantly extended through VR. Using VR techniques, a complete "walk-through" of a design can be used to give an environment like feel. Virtual reality will also help manufacturing labourers in assembly line production. Just as incision lines could be superimposed for a doctor, cut lines can be superimposed for a labourer. This will greatly increase the quality of a finished product.
