Virtual Reality Supported Transition Processes in Teams Developing Products


The transition processes in product development are often manifested as team design reviews with the main purpose of diagnosing problems, verification of the quality of the work achieved, and validation of the specifications for the upcoming activities. Recent research points out the introduction and influence of new technologies, such as virtual reality (VR), as support for information sharing, and representation and capture of knowledge throughout transition processes. VR technologies can potentially decrease the time for navigating and manipulating objects, improve spatial awareness, help in identifying design issues and improve communication among team members. By taking into consideration the importance of transition processes and the necessity for introducing new technologies, this research aims to develop a theoretical model of team transition processes, and experimental research framework for studying virtual reality supported teamwork within the context of design reviews.
