A gated product development process is often implemented by organisations to assist in scrutinising projects throughout their lifecycle to ensure only the fittest survive. Unfortunately, many of the checks and balances lack the teeth required to kill doomed projects before they squander resources.

Pulling the plug on an in-flight project is hard. No one wants to be the person calling it quits, offending team members and admitting defeat. It is this mentality, however, that ends up sucking the life out of resources and budgets and setting the organisation up for continued failure because the process is broken. How can you ensure only the right projects survive, wrong ones are killed early and lessons are celebrated after an appropriate mourning period? It is going to take courage.
This white paper from Man and Machine describes the steps required to set up a computer-assisted virtual environment (CAVE) with Autodesk VRED Professional 2015 and Display Cluster, including the setup and configuration of motion tracking.
