Out on the plant, we have the opportunity to interact with plant personnel, a SCADA system and a real industrial process, which uses water to simulate chemical, pharmaceutical and certain FMCG processes, in a completely benign environment.
We have devised a series of case studies which introduce complex failures, which reduce plant output and raw material yield.
This is the same course we use to train our operations consultants.
GAIN THE CONFIDENCE TO TACKLE PREVIOUSLY UNSOLVED TECHNICAL ISSUES
As pioneered by the aviation industry, the benefit of the simulation over on-the-job training is that we can induce multiple overlaid failures. When things aren’t going to plan, we can stop the simulation, re-brief the team and then re-run the scenario. This is a paradigm shift in the adult learning experience, in a risk free and enjoyable environment, without the day-to-day distractions of being in the place of work.
You can expect to learn about:
- Making the complex understandable
- Spotting patterns in telemetry and output data, so that causal links can be established
- Direct, independent measurement of critical process parameters, to verify that the operators and computers are telling us the true facts
