Operator and Immersive Training Simulators

Publish Date

This market research study delivers current market analysis plus a five year market and technology forecast. The study is available in multiple editions including worldwide and all regions.

Overview

The New Generation of Training Simulators
Training simulators continue to evolve, adopting new technologies and increasingly using virtual reality.  Operators, empowered by sophisticated control systems, have ever-greater responsibility for expensive assets that require in depth knowledge of complex processes to run safely, efficiently, and protect the environment.  Like aircraft pilots, plant operators today learn best with simulators.  Videos, classroom, and on-the-job training, are making way for hands-on time with realistic training simulators.  With operator training simulators (OTS) and immersive training simulators (ITS), operators learn to develop situational awareness and reflexes to address abnormal situations. 

Enabling technologies include 3D modeling and visualization, gaming technology, and the power of servers/cloud computing.

This study includes the latest trends in operator training developments, acquisitions, partnerships, and training technology.  It covers a wide range of OTS and ITS suppliers.

The study addresses the latest market drivers for various industries, including the influence of world oil prices on training simulators in the chemical and oil & gas sectors as well as the impact of the Fukushima accident on training in the nuclear power industry.  Find out how immersive training simulators are used in the mining industry and whether a new market is emerging for simulators in renewable grid power.

Strategic Issues

Users are exhibiting a cautious optimism toward immersive training simulators to improve training for abnormal situations.  Nevertheless, suppliers believe it is not a question of IF, but WHEN they will catch on.  Oil and gas hiring has been slow over the past 18 months due to low oil prices.  The baby boomers however continue to retire and the millennials are entering the workplace.  It normally takes years to match the experience of retirees, unless you can practice startups, shutdowns, grade changes, fires, environmental releases, and accidents with a high degree of realism.

With the high cost and visibility of industrial accidents, training for abnormal situations has taken on a new priority.
