Cloud-based Operator Training

Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) unveiled a connected-learning solution based on its UniSim Competency Suite platform.

Part of the Honeywell Connected Plant initiative, UniSim eLearn is hosted in the cloud and allows access to operator training simulation (OTS).

OTS is a solution for operator training in the process industries. Studies consistently show trainees retain up to 15 times the information they can otherwise recall from a typical lecture with hands-on practice. Dynamic models of complex industrial processes, combined with real-world operator interfaces, provide OTS trainees the practice and experience to quickly develop confidence and competencies to manage normal and abnormal situations.

“With UniSim eLearn, we bring the training direct to the trainee’s work station,” said Shree Dandekar, vice president and general manager, Honeywell Connected Plant. “Businesses don’t have to worry about travel time or operators missing scheduled training sessions. They can easily fit training around work commitments and absences to ensure essential training is never missed.”

For a higher level of learning experience, competency management offers instructors the opportunity to create problems for operators to respond to in a simulated environment. UniSimeLearn can improve the effectiveness of OTS training interventions by combining a range of online learning methods, providing tailored curriculums for smarter, faster training. Courses rapidly build and test foundation skills with interactive Q&As and video learning, followed by OTS exercises to practice and hone performance.

Using the cloud to connect trainees across enterprises, UniSim eLearn dismantles barriers to operator learning and delivers consistent experiences. It offers a simple multi-site training solution, and improved access to OTS for those with logistical, personnel or infrastructure constraints. UniSimeLearn brings on-demand training to staff, wherever they need it.
