However, product development has increasingly become an end-to-end digital lifecycle. Advances in computer-aided engineering have helped to accelerate development, and reduce the expense of producing physical prototypes to aid review/issue detection, but arguably the downside is an increased gap between engineers and their creations – a fundamental disconnect between the digital data and the physical world.
Psychologists refer to this gap as ‘cognitive distance’. This is both inefficient and introduces the risk of quality related problems downstream. When it comes to design reviews, it can prove difficult to apply physical context to digital data, and the performance of the event, particularly as it pertains to issue detection and the quality of the associated dialogue between peers, suffers as a result.
Theorem Solutions provides enabling technologies for engineering and manufacturing businesses to improve their design, engineering, and manufacturing processes, by utilizing existing digital assets to collaborate within innovative Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality Experiences’. Our goal has been to produce a technology agnostic collaboration platform for businesses of all sizes.
Our out-of-the-box the Design Review Experience seamlessly integrates into existing workflows and processes, using proven and robust XR technologies. This out-of-the-box experience, building on the Visualization Experience, is available across VR and MR devices.
