Today the product development environment often revolves around compressed schedules and budget cuts, but an engineer must skillfully weave between these obstacles to reach his ultimate goal – Product release. One revolutionary method aiding the process of product development is Virtual Prototyping. A virtual prototype is a digital simulation of a physical product that can be used to visualize its behavior under real-world operating conditions. The designing and testing of a virtual prototype is called virtual prototyping. A typical virtual prototyping solution involves, creation of a 3D solid model, a human-product interaction model and different test related models for structural analysis, motion analysis and manufacturing evaluations. The process involves usage of variegated advance softwares such as computer-automated design (CAutoD), computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided engineering (CAE) etc. to present, analyze and test the various aspects of product life cycle.
The prime advantage of virtual prototyping is a significant reduction in “time-to-market”. The process of creating a novel product involved numerous prototype builds, testing and the investment of months to years. However with the current availability of multi-physics modeling softwares for virtual prototyping, the time and investment is considerably reduced. Secondly, building and testing on a physical prototype can miss some problems that may not materialize in test chambers, as manufactured. Whereas, in virtual prototyping such corner errors can be pointed out and hence improving on design quality. Thirdly, as it creates prototypes pretty quickly, the method empowers the user to test with multiple complex designs and helps in developing a more competitive product within a limited time frame.
Owing to these lucrative advantages the global virtual prototype market is anticipated to witness a healthy CAGR during the forecast period.
