Discover 3 benefits of using Virtual Reality for training operators
(energy, chemistry, hydrocarbons, nuclear, railway, aeronautic, pharmaceutical and other industries).

First benefit: It ensures your operators’ skills reliability

Industrial sites require alerted and skillful operators who can deal successfully with the most challenging processes: monitoring/verifying the status of an installation, checking an equipment (functional verification, labelling, adjustment, pressure measurement to ensure proper operation etc.), detecting an anomaly (abnormal temperature or flow, origin of a noise or a smell, etc.). However, it is difficult to ensure that all these skills are perfectly mastered (especially in the most extreme situations).

Virtual Reality can help you:

– Anticipate/test/assess the skills of the operators by immersing them in the lifelike reproduction of different processes
– Understand complex systems through guiding operators/users with greater/lesser control
– Provide all necessary means to train, test and experience the most varied situations (maintenance, control, inspection, use…)
– Improve the retention rate of training attendees

Second benefit: Test the original, new or even impossible things!

Traditional risks still remain while new risks emerge constantly (like increasingly intense climatic changes, risks in new production methods, loss of subject matter expertise etc.). Therefore, it is important to anticipate those risks and to have all the resources and means at hand, to be able to prevent them.

– Train in new and extreme environments/conditions in a safe way
– Use interaction modes that are impossible to reproduce in the real world with no harm for people and environment
– Share a rare expertise/experience

Third benefit: Support cooperation between operators/users

Traditional risks still remain while new risks emerge constantly (like increasingly intense climatic changes, risks in new production methods, loss of subject matter expertise etc.). Therefore, it is important to anticipate those risks and to have all the resources and means at hand, to be able to prevent them.

Virtual Reality can help you:

– Provide multi-user environments that foster the cooperation
– Allow players to identify themselves thanks to representation properties
– Give the trainers the opportunity to directly influence a training scenario’s course (manually triggered events)
