    Comparing the evolvement of the manufacturing industry of the last century to the way virtual reality is used nowadays some remarkable similarities come to light. Current virtual reality equipment requires a high level of craftsmanship to achieve the maximum results, and often equipment is specially build for a dedicated process or project. While the technical revolution in the manufacturing industry led to a turnaround in which more generic production equipment were used in a structured configuration. The goal is to prevent the pitfalls already encountered in the last century in process planning, and convert the advantages of a reconfigurable manufacturing system to the way virtual reality is used.
