This case study was conducted in a car manufacturing company where they used an immersive virtual reality system when designing the production process for a brand new car model. The process was designed simultaneously with the product development. The study is based on a user interview after the process was implemented in reality. Results concider the biggest gaps between working in a virtual environment and with physical models. Also some general thoughts of virtual reality system requirements are presented.
