Maintainability is an important criterion for product lifecycle management (PLM). Product maintenance needs experience and skills of the product structure and operations. It can significantly improve the understanding of a product and efficiency of product maintenance using user-friendly interfaces to show product details and operations. 3D visualization technology provides a useful tool for the understanding of product and maintenance training. Product structure and the operation process can be clearly shown and run in 3D visualized user interfaces. A framework is proposed for 3D visualization-based training systems in this paper for the aid of understanding in product maintenance. The needs and implementation of the framework are discussed. Two applications are developed to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed method.
