Performance Comparison: 2-D versus 3-D Collaborative Product Review

Project status: Complete

Thrust area: Enabling Information Infrastructure

Research team: Caroline Hayes

The goal of this work is to: 1. Measure the benefits of 2-D product visualization versus 3-D stereographic visualizations for virtual teams engaged in product design review tasks. 2. Provide organizations with the knowledge to make informed investments in 2-D and 3-D tools for virtual collaboration. Is 3-D really worth the extra equipment and effort? We will do so by systematically assessing the effectiveness of users when they collaborate in 2-D versus 3-D virtual environments
