Operator and Immersive Training Simulators

Publish Date

The Operator Training Simulators 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.

Operator Training Simulators Adapt to New Market

Operator training simulators have been established as the fastest and most effective way to train operators.  It would be unthinkable to train an aircraft pilot without a flight simulator and the same goes for training operators at facilities where operators have great responsibilities for the safety of people, equipment, the environment, product quality, and production efficiency.

Virtually all PLC and DCS suppliers now offer a virtual control system development and simulation environment that can be used to engineer and test control systems. This virtual environment is easily connected to a process simulator, and is usually ideal for accurately simulating the control system algorithms, alarms, and graphical user interface.

The operator training simulator market has been impacted by the low world price of oil and gas.  This has resulted in fewer upstream greenfield projects that normally would include an operator training simulator system.  The emergence of distributed renewable grid power, various energy conservation achievements for industry, buildings, and homeowners has lowered the growth in traditional central station power and associated operator training simulator systems.  Developing countries such as India, China, and others that are building electric infrastructure have seen growth in operator training simulators. The study shows how these new market forces are unfolding.

Operator Training Simulators Strategic Issues

Operator Training Simulators Market TrendsConservative end users have been slow to embrace 3D immersive training simulators for field operators, focusing more on console operator training.  With so many large companies developing 3D virtual and augmented reality software and hardware, suppliers believe it is not a question of IF, but WHEN they will catch on.  So how can suppliers increase their value proposition?

  • Are different strategies required for different industries?
  • Will the popular digital twin concept help to keep operator training simulation maintained for the life of the plant?
  • How critical is initial cost in relation to life cycle cost?
