Operator safety training environment got a boost last week when Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) released its UniSim Competency Suite, which looks to hike operator competency through realistic training experiences for console and field operators in the process industries.

The new suite of simulation software, unveiled at the ARC Advisory Group’s ARC Industry Forum 2015 in Orlando, FL, last week, offers an integrated training experience that will help industrial facilities address a growing shortage of trained operators.

The UniSim Competency suite uses:
• Operator Training Simulator (OTS), a dynamic plant simulation system that allows users to accelerate knowledge transfer by consolidating an entire lifetime of experience into a concise process training curriculum; features realistic process, control and safety systems modeling
• Customizable competency model that aligns and assists in improving critical requisite skills and behaviors; tracks operator progress; built from Abnormal Situation Management Consortium’s research into operator competency to help businesses define, deploy and manage a structured competency program
• Knowledge capture and propagation tool; provides a repository for domain knowledge and experiences; teaches and evaluates “what if” reflexes and diagnostic abilities
• Interactive, navigable, panoramic view for realistic field operator training; uses actual facility photographs and extends UniSim Operations simulator training to include field operators
• UniSim Operations simulator integration and connectivity to 3D virtual environment; provides credible and realistic experiences for field operator
