Abstract

Mixed Reality (MR) applications are currently finding their way into productive industrial activities due to recent technological developments. Promising fields of professional utilization for MR are information visualization, education and training, human machine interfaces, design tools and collaboration. In Life Cycle Engineering (LCE) great amounts of data are required to be synthetized and interpreted in order to gain the required insights that lead to consistent environmental strategies. LCE tools and methods such as Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) can profit from modern technology and interfaces for visualization. The utilization of MR offers advantages in this context. Based on an analysis of the key capabilities of MR, possible application scenarios in LCE are identified such as contribution analysis, design processes, information visualization and communication. A conceptual approach is proposed for mapping the possible application for mixed reality applications.
