Digital Engineering is an emerging trend that brings together different experts to develop new products and processes or to enhance existing ones. Functionalities are often non-visible in the development process. Virtual reality is a promising technology to visualize aspects such as quality, security, or safety. Due to the increasing amount of software that is inherited in products or used to control processes different domain experts have to collaborate with software engineers. With the help of Digital Engineering methods and tools, system properties such as reliability and safety can be early included in the development.
