E-manufacturing is a new generation of product development solution allows manufacturers all over the world to speed up and slim down everything from design to manufacturing. It has been employed in a wide range of manufacturing activities. Networked Virtual Environments (Net-VEs) have already begun to foster an insightful, intuitive and interactive system that allows effective communication among multiple users. After exploring the architecture and features of Net-VEs, a cost-effective approach to create an e-manufacturing system in Net-VEs is proposed in this paper. The World Wide Web (WWW) as the delivery mechanism has made such system widely available and affordable. We also evaluate an e-manufacting system in Net-VEs by comparison with a traditional product development approach.
