Abstract

Interactive visual analysis has become a very popular research field. There is a significant body of literature on making sense of massive data sets, on visualization and interaction techniques as well as on analysis concepts. However, surveying how those results can be applied to actual engineering problems, including both product and manufacturing design as well as evaluation of simulation and measurement data, has not been discussed sufficiently to date. In this paper we provide a selection of demonstration cases that document the potential benefits of using interactive visual analysis in a wide range of engineering domains, including the investigation of flow and particle dynamics, automotive engine design tasks and change management in the product design process. We attempt to identify some of the proven technological details such as the linking of space-time and attribute views through an application-wide coherent selection mechanism. This paper might be an interesting survey for readers with a relation to the engineering sector, both reflecting on available technological building blocks for interactive visual data analysis as well as exemplifying the potential benefits on behalf of the application side.
