Operator Training Simulator Handbook

By: Joseph Philip

Overview of this book

Operator training simulators in the process industry have been around since the 1970s, but you may not find a book that documents the development of these systems and the standard best practices. The Operator Training Simulator Handbook covers best practices for OTS engineering and OTS training development and delivery, starting from the basic the jargon and the different types of OTS systems. It will take you through the best approaches to project specification as well as building, maintenance, planning, and delivering these systems by sharing real-life experiences and dos and don’ts. As you advance, you'll uncover the various challenges in the planning and delivery of operator training models and understand how to address those by working through real-world projects. This book helps in specifying the best fit for purpose, choosing a cost-effective system when acquiring an OTS. You'll also learn how you can turn your OTS projects into digital twins before finally learning all about documentation in a typical OTS project, covering the sample structure that you can use as a starting point in your projects. By the end of the book, you'll have learned best practices for developing operator training simulator systems and have a reference guide to overcome common challenges.

Detailed design specification

The DDS will be used to test against in the MAT. To know what is needed in the DDS let's see what we are looking to test in the MAT.

In addition, the DDS will be used later by the OTS supplier to document the model in the model manual, where the end user can see the basis on how every piece in the model is modeled.

In the MAT section of this chapter, we will list the main points that we need to ensure have been achieved to ensure a successful MAT. We will need to address these points in the DDS to work as a testing verification tool in the MAT.

Having said that, now let's discuss what we need to see in the DDS.
