Making the Business Case
At Simlog, we recognize that many people need to be part of your
purchasing decisions, including colleagues and even customers, when
discussing the benefits of simulator-based raining.
The fact is, training heavy equipment operators is hard. And costly. Hard, because you're teaching skills, and that takes lots of drill and practice under careful supervision. Costly, because all that drill and practice is expensive with wear-and-tear on real iron, not to mention instructor salaries. Now think of the risks to people and equipment when you've got trainees at the controls of your equipment!
For all of these reasons, Simlog's Personal
Simulators have become a trusted and a cost-effective way of improving
traditional operator training programs, because Simlog-style simulator-based training is:
- completely safe
- always available (our simulated machines never break down)
- monitored, since it's easy to keep track of results
- accelerated, because our instruction design presents simulated tasks that are progressively more difficult, in order to break up the learning into small "steps" which build upon each other
- reliable, thanks to Simlog's innovative 3D simulation technology
- objective, since for each Simulation Module, performance is evaluated by measuring key performance indicators associated with both job productivity and quality
- self-paced, i.e. each simulator user can advance from module to module at his/her own speed (with no trainer interaction)
- consistent, because the same exercises are presented to everyone, making it possible to really compare the performance of different people
- generic, since people learn the essentials of operating heavy equipment without manufacturer-specific details, making it easy to proceed to "hands-on" training on a variety of real equipment
- fun, i.e. simulator-based training improves motivation by fostering a completely new attitude toward learning!
Now to help you make the business case, we have prepared the following information for
But sometimes, making the business case means training service providers and equipment owner/operators working together to
