Integration of Negative Knowledge into MCAD Education to Support Competency Development for Product Design
Abstract. Nowadays, the processes of product design and development are widely supported by using virtual prototypes (VP). The reasons for employing virtual prototypes during product design and development are manifold: for example to benefit from a digital model which supports both the assessment of design concepts and the evaluation of design alternatives, or to perform tests and analysis. Various definitions of VP have been proposed in the past. Within the context of the work presented, we will define a virtual prototype as a computer simulation of a physical product that can be presented, analyzed, and tested from relevant product life-cycle aspects such as design/engineering, manufacturing, service, and recycling just like a real physical model.
