Advanced Simulation and Knowledge Portal Framework

Modeling and Simulation logoArtifact Software offers advanced Modeling and Simulation (M & S) solutions as well as Knowledge Portal Frameworks.

Advanced Modeling and Simulation

Artifact use advanced serious gaming technology and proven best-of-breed pedagogical methods to deliver 2D and 3D modeling and simulation as part of its training solutions.

Serious games and immersive environments are proving to be the most effective and engaging method of learning. Personnel build confidence and learn without risk by participating in simulations, serious games, and virtual worlds.

Advanced Modeling and Simulation enables learners to:

  • Actively engage in experiential learning based on real-world environments and contexts
  • Enhance learning motivation
  • Accelerate skill acquisition and transfer through hands-on practice in a safe environment
  • Obtain immediate feedback on performance

SimOps: Production and Maintenance Reliability Engineering

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.

Benefits

SimOps Overview

Knowledge Portal Framework

Artifact has developed a great deal of expertise in Portal technology while developing its own e learning portal and other service portals.

We offer this expertise to our clients who:

  • Want to build their own Portals
  • Wish to lower their risk
  • Obtain the key technologies faster

Portal technology

Our portals are based on industry standards including :

Apache, Tomcat, Jetspeed, JasperReports, SCORM, JSF, JSP and MySQL.

We can incorporate single sign-on, access to legacy systems:

  • Content Management Systems
  • E-mail
  • Business Intelligence Modules
  • Collaboration and Knowledge Management modules

We can also offer hosting and complete facilities management for the portals.

Learning Management Portals

We can offer you a custom portal in the form of :

  • Enterprise LMS ( learning management system )
  • Subscription based learning management system :
    this is used by companies that have networks of learners such as franchises that require training and support at distance.
