    Abstract

    In recent years, the use of virtual prototyping (VP) has increased in industry. Nevertheless, the potential of VP in product development has still not been fully achieved in practice. Companies do not necessary know how to use VP technologies and for that reason they are not able to achieve all the benefits. This publication presents the work that has been done by VTT, mainly in the research project called LEFA "New Generation Human-Centered Design Simulators for Life Cycle Efficient Mobile Machines", addressing VP in human-machine interaction design. The purpose is to describe what VP means, what benefits can be achieved, and how companies can use VP in practice. This publication improves the understanding of VP and can be used as a guideline by companies.
