Virtual Manufacturing: Sophisticated Design Tools for the 21st Century (Technical Insights)

  • Published: November 1998
  • Frost & Sullivan

Driven by the wider availability

of low-cost 3D graphics hardware,

and advances in Internet technology

that make it easier for even complex

information to be disseminated from

UNIX workstations to desktop PCs,

virtual manufacturing is the wave of
the future. It will enable companies to

reduce design and production costs,
ensure product quality, and slash the

time needed to go from product concept
to production—making it possible

to respond instantly to continually
changing market and world conditions.
Virtual Manufacturing, a report
from Technical Insights, presents you

with valuable intelligence on this fast
emerging field. You'll find out what

virtual manufacturing can do for you
... how to apply it in your industry ...

what technology is currently available

and what is coming down the pipeline
... and what the market prospects are

for virtual manufacturing products and
technologies.
