Catching Design Issues Early with Virtual Reality
Why incur time delays and sudden costs fixing unexpected problems on your assembly line when you can evaluate designs and spot potential errors before you begin construction? No physical mock-ups required, no waiting for a physical product to be produced and evaluated, and if you have more than one site, no time-consuming and costly travel arrangements. Find out how Nexteer Automotive improved the quality and performance of their assembly equipment by stepping inside the virtual world - and how you can do the same.

How FCA Brazil Cut Costs and Timelines with VR
As the automotive industry becomes increasingly competitive, reducing costs for unnecessary downtime and launch delays due to production risks becomes that much more important. What if there was a way you could predict potential issues before they become a problem, avoid pre-production pilot assembly and tooling costs and shave off weeks from your production and launch timeline? Marcelo Lima at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles explains how they achieved all of this, and more and how you can too.
