Summary Customized product development is facing th: challenge of keeping mass production efficiency. To pursue mass producibility, this paper proposes an approach by combining the ideas of virtual prototyping (VP) with design by manufacturing simulation techniques. By constructing virtual prototypes, accurate assessments of mass producibility will enable better informed customization designs. The primary goal of VP for customized product development is to provide a multidisciplinary design definition and rapid prototyping environment for concept development and a tailored, scenario-based simulation environment for concept evaluation within a single facility. This design environment facilitates the capture and utilization of information generated during the design phase, and the simultaneous generation, at design time, of manufacturing, materials, costing, and scheduling data, to support the implementation of concurrent engineering, as well as the visual evaluation and customer's perception on the target product.
