Virtual reality in manufacturing

Shiratuddin, M.F. and Zulkifli, A.N. (2001) Virtual reality in manufacturing. In: Management Education for the 21st Century, 12 - 14 September, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam



Virtual Reality (VR) is amongst the technologies that have existed as early as the 1960s. Only until recently it has resurrected and is making a comeback into many shapes and forms of our daily lives. This paper describes in general the use of VR tools in the manufacturing sector. Examples of successful adoption of VR technologies in manufacturing companies and organisations are described. Issues in manufacturing industries revolve around the flow of information and planning processes, intra-organisations and inter-organisations.
