Abstract: Manufacturing is using Virtual Reality tools to enhance the product lifecycle. Their definitions are still in flux and it is necessary to define theirconnections. Thus, firstly, we will introduce more closely some definitionswhere we will find that, if the Virtual manufacturing concepts originate frommachining operations and evolve in this manufacturing area, there exist a lotof applications in different fields such as casting, forging, sheetmetalworking and robotics mechanisms. From the recent projects in Europe orin USA, we notice that the human perception or the simulation of mannequin ismore and more needed in both fields. In this context, we have isolated someapplications as ergonomic studies, assembly and maintenance simulation, designor training where the virtual reality tools can be applied. Thus, we find out afamily of applications where the virtual reality tools give the engineers themain role in the optimization process. We will illustrate our paper by severalexamples where virtual reality interfaces are used and combined withoptimization tools as multi-agent systems.
