From the article:

Engineers at companies like Caterpillar CAT +2.83% and General Motors GM +3.01% already use VR systems, virtually “creating” products to test design principles, safety, and more. Ford Motor Company over the last seven years has made VR central to its automotive development.

Andrew Connell, CTO of Virtalis, a world-leading virtual-reality company based in the United Kingdom, believes that the use of VR systems in engineering and product design allows people to better understand and interact with product data while also fostering communication between designers, manufacturers, trainers, marketers, and management…

Virtalis’s Visionary Render VR software allows companies to do just that. Users are able to access and experience, in real-time, an interactive and immersive VR environment created from 3D datasets. Engineers, marketers, project managers, and others involved in a product’s creation can virtually collaborate with each other as avatars.“The VR systems network people together so they all see the same product on their screens and can have a meeting around this product,” Connell says. “So if somebody in, say Bristol, moves a component, everyone else sees it move. And they’re all immersed with avatars in the virtual worlds.”
