This article presents new problems linked to the increasing use of virtual spaces in the building of new types of manufacturing, currently known as virtual manufacturing (VM). VM has many consequences in the activity of industrial companies whatever the size, economic sector or geographical area. Particular attentions are paid to virtual spaces, manufacturing and collaboration, skills matrix and manufacturability, CAD and virtual prototyping cases. Finally, virtual partnerships or enterprise as a new type of organization are also considered.
