Software Uses Gamification to Enhance Training

According to the company, its simulated approach to industrial control system use and maintenance training has shown increased retention rates.


Simutech Multimedia (Ottawa, Canada) recently unveiled their new Simutech Training System that teaches critical troubleshooting skills to those operating and maintaining industrial control systems. According to the company, the simulation techniques used by the system have been shown to increase retention rates. Simutech also feels the more flexible nature of the system can help improve user engagement and learning effectiveness. The platform guides users through a six-step systematic approach to troubleshooting circuits, helping them develop techniques to safely navigate industrial electrical control, motor and PLC circuits. Managers also can continuously monitor their staff’s skills development.
