The concept of virtual prototyping can be found linked to many different keywords in the literature: modeling, look-ahead problem solving, etc. This poster paper briefly discusses the potential real benefits that can be realized through pre-build cost savings, minimization of the number of prototype builds, and post-build problem avoidance for physical prototypes and production products. Relative comparisons are made for typical costs and normal problem occurrences.
