"The subject of increased productivity remains top of mind for all who attend. These can be achieved via staff, equipment, TOS and process improvement initiatives.
Simulation for training purposes is still a new idea but the idea seems to be gaining adoption as it is a very inexpensive way to train with a low total cost of ownership allowing for increased productivity of staff while decreasing the downtime of equipment. The equipment can remain in production while the simulators train the new recruits.
Our clients claim a 40-50% reduction in training time with simulator-trained operators demonstrating faster time to full competency. This is due to the accessibility of the simulators compared to real equipment for training purposes."
