Virtual Reality 虛擬實境技術
Virtual Reality (VR) is like the twin sister of simulation technology. In the world of industrial engineering, these two are often used together to help industries and companies to make better business decisions, or improve operations. Virtual Reality is a simulated 3-D environment.  It takes the simulation up several notches to create a truly immersive and engaging experience of a virtually existing environment.
虛擬實境技術是企業決策者的左右手,經常在工業工程的應用上一起使用,幫助企業作出最佳的商業決策,提升績效。虛擬實境技術帶領使用者走進3D的虛擬世界,令他們體會到在真實環境下可能的情況。

Walking into the 3-D World of Business 走進 3-D的商業世界
Asia Airfreight Terminal (AAT) is a good case example where we use VR to create a 3-D cargo handling warehouse , and users can virtually navigate the space in all directions.  The virtual environment is an excellent tool for in-house training and development since it looks and feels real, yet it takes away the potential danger and hassles for being on location.  VR is also an effective way to promote a product or service. The marketing team at AAT is able to utilize the 3-D immersive experience to impress their clients by taking them through the warehouse operations virtually. The potential power of VR for all kinds of commercial applications is almost infinite since there is virtually nothing that the industrial engineer cannot build with the virtual reality tool.
以亞洲空運中心為例,香港大學工業及製造系統工程系使用虛擬實境技術為亞洲空運中心建造一個3D虛擬貨運倉庫,使用者可以自由游走於虛擬倉庫之中。虛擬倉庫是很好的員工培訓工具,準確的顯示倉庫內各部分的環境和潛在的問題,避免實地培訓的麻煩。行銷團隊也可帶客戶走一趟虛擬倉庫,展示倉庫操作,比傳統方法更為有效。香港大學工業及製造系統工程系協助香港的企業以先進的電腦演示技術,更有效培訓員工,開拓更大商機。
