    Abstract

    Virtual prototyping (VP) is increasingly applied during product development processes in industry. This paper investigates if the use of VP supports design reviews and identifies critical issues related to it. In addition, it illustrates a systematic approach for VP design review preparation. Studies were conducted on two cases in the rock crushing industry. Data was collected by observations and using questionnaires. Based on results, VP was seen to be suitable for supporting design reviews and cooperation between participating stakeholders. In addition, it enhanced the first-hand experience of the use context for design engineers. The use of the systematic approach for the preparation of VP design reviews highlighted the importance of the goal setting for the review meetings: it can improve or decrease the quality of the VP design review results. The systematic approach to VP design review preparation can be used by industry and also by the research community.
