SimOps

Accelerated Learning Solutions

SimOps is a virtual interactive job aid used in production and maintenance reliability engineering.

More than an ordinary job aid, operator’s manual or maintenance manual, Simops brings your processes alive for your staff. Our unique concept is a cost-effective way to improve productivity, reduce downtime, improve safety and reduce accidents impacting employees and the environment.

SimOps applies to wide range of industries including chemical, petrochemical, manufacturing and energy production.

Equipment and Process

SimOps decribes the operation of each component of the operating unit using 2d or 3d illustrations and animations as well as photos and textual information in context.

SimOps presents the internal flows as well as the relationships between systems.

Safety, capacity and process information are presented to make the operator’s comprehension of the unit more concrete and unified.

Operating Instructions

SimOps visually links the operating instructions to the processes and equipment. The operatior’s activities are explicited related to the equipment and processes being controlled.

Simulating the troubleshooting and maintenance procedures can better explain the link between the procedures and the underlying strategies and rationals.

Safety precautions

SimOps identifies the safety precautions that apply to the production unit and links them to the process flow and equipment descriptions.

This visual approach improves retention and strengthens the mental link between safety precautions and the process.

Features

SimOps gives a multimedia presentation of a unit and its individual components. Each component’s physical location is identified as well as the relationships between the components in the context of the process. It acts as an index to the specifications for operations and maintenance. The details of each component are presented in the context of the process flow and production specifications. SimOps provides a roadmap to the operators and maintenance personnel for a production unit.
