OTS Value and Benefits

As part of the Simulation and Training offerings under the SimSci by Schneider Electric brand, Operator Training Simulators (OTS) provide plant field and control room operators, maintenance and HSE personnel efficient knowledge transfer and skill development in a matter of months rather than years. 

With an OTS, operators are able to improve overall skills and performance by experiencing plant “issues” and “problems” in a simulated or even a virtual reality digital environment.
This approach improves operator responses that can:
  • Reduce the number of abnormal situations and unplanned shutdowns
  • Lower the risk of loss of life, assets, production and/or environmental releases
  • Increase operator awareness, skills and readiness

These systems help ensure faster start-up times, quicker recovery from process upsets with less equipment stresses, and the ability to correct procedure errors prior to on-line production.
In addition, operator training and plant performance improvements reduce capital investment costs, increase process yields and enhance management decisions while leveraging existing technology investments.

An investment in an OTS can save hundreds of thousands of dollars or more with paybacks measured in a matter of weeks or months.
