Safety and Quality Training Simulator
Created: Tuesday, 01 December 2009
A portable system of electromechanical and electronic hardware
and documentation has been developed as an automated
means of instructing technicians in matters of safety and quality.
The system enables elimination of most of the administrative
tasks associated with traditional training. Customized, performance-
based, hands-on training with integral testing is substituted
for the traditional instructional approach of passive attendance
in class followed by written examination. The system includes four workstations, accommodating up to
eight students. The system simulates hazardous conditions
(without exposing students to real hazards) and quality or safety
discrepancies that students are required to recognize and for
which the students are required to perform corrective actions.
The system enables students to demonstrate knowledge gained
from previous training and work experience. The system provides
remedial training for each student who does not perform
satisfactorily in a simulation.
