The IDO:Explore VDP software solution thus not only supports specialists with specific issues, but can also be used in a product's complete lifecycle from its design to product sales. Therefore, not only are consistent visual decision-making processes created. A holistic digital product process comes into being that simplifies and accelerates product development. The complete system consists of the IDO:Explore VDP software, a visual body tracking system, the necessary computer hardware and the visualisation hardware with two video projectors and a projection system.
IDO:Explore VDP provides all the tools needed for an entry into the world of visual decision-making. As an immersive system for true-size displays, IDO:Explore VDP offers all important functions for making decisions fast, relia-bly and in a way that can be documented. Its essential advantage is that data is gathered together from diverse data sources to produce a consistent image of products. Thus, potential errors are detected early on, weak spots are revealed and optimisation potential is tracked down.
IDO:Explore VDP is at home in many areas of an enterprise and taps new possibilities of saving costs and improving processes, for example in the areas of engineering, development or maintenance. One essential element is the creation of a visually backed communication platform that provides a uniform view of the decision for all participants.
Many enterprises still shy away from visual decision-making out of fear of high costs and small benefit. ICIDO confronts these reservations with an attractive entry-level offering priced at less than 85,000 euros for a complete immersive system. And it will thus provide a fast return on investment. Commenting on this, Ralf Heimberg, managing director of ICIDO, says, "Many enterprises have asked us when there will finally be a standardised virtual reality platform that is easy to operate, and is fully functional, integrative and affordable. We've now found the answer to this question. With IDO:Explore, it has become easier and more affordable than ever before to take on the issue of virtual product development."
