Keywords: modeling, simulation, visualization, virtual product development.
Virtual product development systems evolved from the integration of modeling, simulation and visualization tools and facilities with other product life cycle software and management tools. As the trend of distributed collaboration, large-scale integration of computing resources, enterprise tools, facilities, and processes continues, fundamental paradigm shift will occur in modeling simulation and visualization (MSV) technologies. The present paper reviews some of the recent developments in the MSV technologies, and identifies the major components of future product development infrastructure, with particular emphasis on the role of MSV technologies.
