Advantageous applications of Virtual Reality (VR) in product design can be found throughout the product development process. For instance, VR can facilitate stakeholder communication or enable virtual prototyping. However, despite a wealth of literature describing opportunities of VR, and an accompanying range of VR toolkits, it has yet to become a common design tool. It is argued that the limited adoption of VR as a design tool is caused by the fact that most VR design tools are less

The approach involves three industrial case studies in which we first identify advantageous VR applications and then provide the industrial partner with tools to create this application. The resulting requirements are validated through a cross-company evaluation. This paper presents the results of the first case study.
