In this work we discuss how construction of microsystems via microassembly can be optimized through simulation of the entire process in virtual reality prior to actual execution. We exercise a holistic approach towards microscale manufacturing where different aspects of microassembly are evaluated concurrently in custom designed virtual reality simulation software in order to achieve low cost, complex and heterogeneous micromanufacturing.
