UniSim OTS Platform Migration and Maintenance Benefits

 The oil and gas production, gas processing, petroleum refining and chemicals industries make widespread use of Operator Training Simulators (OTS) for training and competency management of process operations staff.

The training simulator provides the tools and techniques for trainees to experience and practice routine normal, nonroutine normal (start-up and shutdown) and non-routine abnormal (emergency operations) activities in a safe environment.

 The training simulator plays a critical role in operational effectiveness and competency management. To ensure credible and realistic trainee experiences and outcomes, the OTS must be relevant, reliable and realistic, aligned with industry training trends while reflecting, as much as practical, the current real world dynamic operating environment. The face of the training simulator system is the set of instructor features, training tools, man-machine interface and integration capabilities with learning management, competency management systems and other training tools.


The heart of the training simulator system is the replication of real world systems by the process, control, and logic modeling engines. Both aspects are important in the development of high performing process operators. As the process and automation systems evolve, an OTS without regular updates and maintenance will deviate from the real world experience, leading to compromised training outcomes and related risks. A well maintained OTS system, deploying the latest tools and capabilities can create well trained, high performance operators via more effective training interventions and improved trainee outcomes. Well trained operators improve process operations, performance, reliability and safety.
