    Abstract

    Virtual environments open new possibilities for taking account of the human early in the product design. This paper provides a brief insight into the research in this area conducted by the Human-Machine Interaction and Virtual Engineering team at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. The paper describes the methods and approaches that are applied in case examples, leading to a number of benefits for the industry, such as faster time-to-market, better usability, and improved information sharing and knowledge creation. The vision is to design for humans in the context of human-system interaction. This vision both develops and applies the multidiscipline distributed framework and platform for the integrated use of virtual environments, human factors, and product lifecycle management.
