Development cycles encompass an overwhelming arsenal of data, tools, methods and techniques. They relate to many different types of stakeholders, with different perspectives, objectives and interests. Also, there are many differences in fields of expertise, languages/jargon, system levels, cultures and opinions that complicate multi-stakeholder decision making. Even if unequivocal information and/or Digital Twins are available, shared and unambiguous understanding in decision making is not obvious. Virtual Dashboards allow stakeholders to identify with any subset of the perspectives involved, because the insight in the information is presented in an autorarchic manner. This implies that the information content is filtered and presented according to perspective(s) of the specific stakeholders involved. Virtual Dashboards build on the realm of information, models, scenarios, simulations, tools and techniques available, allowing stakeholders to address specific subjects or aspects of e.g. a production environment. To make the Virtual Dashboards as instrumental as possible, different ways of making the information insightful are combined. This ranges from smart information sets, via simulations, infographics, 3D models and visualisations to full-blown Virtual Reality or Augmented Reality applications. Depending on the way in which the information is accessed, Virtual Dashboards are especially appropriate to connect to and control remote locations. Moreover, a Virtual Dashboard can ostensibly integrate multiple environments into one coherent entirety.
