There is a lot of talks today about Industry 4.0 and how the digitalisation of processes will revolutionise the world. However, tools such as Virtual Reality (VR) are often overlooked even though they contribute significantly to intelligent value creation. How do they do it?

It's simple, the digitisation of industry is not just about connecting production and design or the automatization of all processes. It also has a lot to do with intelligent planning. Put it this way, VR allows your company to optimise almost any process, from evaluating large-scale production plants to the location and installation of new machinery. Virtual reality is a technology that has infinite applications, from stakeholder presentations to sales and marketing. However, for the purposes of this article, we will focus on its use in the field of intelligent factory planning and process optimisation.
