summary This paper examines the potential of utilizing virtual mock-ups in end user involvement processes. To access if virtual mock-ups can optimize existing processes, current workflows using physical full-scale mock-ups on several projects are explored. Requirements regarding the traditional workflows are captured through a series of interviews and observational studies. The identified use hereof is then analyzed and consolidated into system requirements and visions of a potential virtual supplement. Based on the identified requirements, a live prototype is developed supporting multiuser experiences in interactive environments through multiple and various devices such as CAVEs, HMD´s and touch devices supporting multi touch co-creation. Finally, the prototype is tested together with end users in ongoing projects to validate the potential of virtual mock-ups and to further detail the requirements to such a system.
