The product development of complex machinery is moving away from a focus
on technical features to an emphasis on user experience throughout the
product lifecycle. The advent of new real-time simulation techniques is
enabling end user participation in product development and active
collaboration throughout the entire product lifecycle. Using an example
of a real-time simulation of a forklift, this paper describes an
approach to integrate the needs and requirements of the end users
throughout the product lifecycle. In practice, this cooperation is
facilitated by accumulating user experience in a virtual reality
environment using a real-time simulation of the multibody system-based
forklift. The paper discusses tools and procedures that should be
included in user-experience-driven product development using digital
twinning to integrate user experience into the product lifecycle. It
also describes how the new approach can influence conventional business
processes and customer purchase decisions.
