Virtual Assembly Design Environment (VADE) resulted from a research and development project started in 1995, sponsored by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The main purpose of this project was to explore the potential and the technical challenges in using VR technologies for design and manufacturing by creating a VE for assembly planning and evaluation. In this article, we describe the overall system, the important features, and examples of using VADE. We also discuss the benefits and limitations of virtual assembly systems. In addition, we compare virtual assembly and automated assembly planning systems
