Abstract

The paper presents an approach and innovative initial results of virtual prototyping for the development of ultra precise positioning and measuring machines in a changing market The basic concept is to apply the modularisation at all levels of abstraction during the design process. Thereby machines can be used for a wide range of applications. Virtual prototyping supports the development in all phases of design. The paper describes a fundamental contribution to improve the development process of positioning and measurement systems for highest precision applications

Keywords: Virtual Prototyping, Modularisation, Complexity, Innovation
