Plant Managers, Human Resource Managers, Operations Managers, Training Managers, Engineering Managers
In the search for improved profitability, refineries worldwide know that the game is won or lost each day on the front lines with highly skilled, experienced operations teams. They also know that inexperienced and undertrained operators are a liability, risking not only the safety of refinery personnel but also the refinery's profitability.
A less experienced operations workforce is likely to become a persistent trend as an older generation of employees is replaced by a new generation. Refineries need new methods and strategies to get their workforce up to speed faster, transferring knowledge, experience, and skills from one generation to the next.
Fortunately, the science of human performance management has converged with education and industrial technologies in a solution that can dramatically improve human performance and reduce the "time to experience" of your most important asset, your technical workforce.
Join Trevor Cusworth, Enterprise Client Executive at Invensys, and Howard Jemison, Consulting Engineer at Invensys and expert in operator training simulation, as they introduce you to the new world of virtual reality training technology. Learn how this new technology – virtual reality and simulation – enables operators to train on an offline control system that's an identical model of the control room environment. It captures all behavior and controls all plant responses in the same manner as the actual plant.
