In this paper the use of virtual demonstrators as means to contextually validate both design methods and novel Technologies in advance of industrial Product development. Since maturity requirements are high, and pure technology and methods development Projects typically result in promising, but not validated, methods and Technologies and full scale hardware demonstration initiatives are costly, there is a gap to fill. Functional Modeling and Value Driven design methods are used with Ceramic Metallic Composites technologies in a virtual demonstrator.
