IPIX VisionBridge is an innovative alliance of developers, facilitators and consultants. Our 3-Dimensional virtual visualization Internet platform is called 360 Virtual CITE, C-I-T-E is an abbreviation for Collaboratively Interactive Team Environment.
John Snyder, one of the three Department of Defense Speakers from the Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute’s, (DMDII), last Open Project Call, identified the functionalities of our platform as a “Digital Manufacturing Commons”, (DMC). He went on to explain, our exact development goals, to empower multiple participants throughout the life-cycle of a manufactured product line to contribute and collaborate in real-time.
We have been in discussions with Jim Barkley, Associate Director of DMDII’s Digital Manufacturing Commons, who has asked us how we could incorporate our virtual platform into DMDII’s DMC.
360 Virtual CITE enables multiple participants to see AND take the controls in turning and resizing a 3-Dimensional manufactured product, (in a 360° horizontal and/or vertical orientation). Teammates can participate from the very beginning concept, throughout the design and manufacturing life-cycle process to disposal and recycling of the product. Participants can all contribute and collaborate to develop team-based solutions, in real-time, on the spot.
A unique system of re-positionable hyperlinks, enables each of the participants to attach a robust series of communication and media to the 3-Dimensional product, including, but not limited to post it notes, chat, email, sound and image files, databases, PDFs, documents and contracts, archived videos, Web Sites, including eCommerce and live video conferencing. 360 Virtual CITE becomes a living repository for all of this manufacturing and end-user information. Participants can enter the team environment through a single unique URL, no software is needed to be downloaded. The team sessions, interactions and communication are saved as a Web Site or Application, that other team members can review and participate in at their availability.
We are looking for partners, with whom we can work with, through DMDII, to bring this robust 360 virtual visualization team environment to their individual projects and vertical industries.
