Experience The Oil Industry In Your 3D Training Simulations

The oil industry is a huge part of the US business sector, as it is in many countries around the world. It is also a very complex industry with a variety of different processes that the oil goes through in getting from the ground to the refinery and then out to the consumer. Understanding all of these complicated and complex issues can be challenging if you use traditional types of training programs or have employees complete their learning on the job.

At Designing Digitally, Inc. we understand that the more realistic a training is the more effective the learning will be. Using 3D training simulations that allow employees to learn about all aspects of the oil industry is a cost effective, safe and engaging way that allows you to focus in on the specific aspects of the training that are of importance to you and your employees. The simulations will be as realistic as actually being on the drilling rig, at the refinery or in planning for a pipeline, shipping route or logistically managing sales.

In the Field

Working on a drilling rig has its risks and, for many people new to the oil and gas industry, their first experience is completely overwhelming. Trainers within the industry can use a 3D training simulation to allow new rig workers to actually experience putting up a rig and drilling, all without any risk to the individuals or equipment. The 3D immersive world can be designed to be highly realist and take all the mystery out of what happens, why things are done in a particular order on the rig and how important safety is in all aspects of building.

Modules for training simulations in 3D can also provide opportunities for troubleshooting and repairing drilling rigs, which is a real time and cost saver for the company.

Moving and Refining the Oil

Planning how to move the oil from the rig to the refinery is another aspect of the industry. This logistic type of online 3D training module could include planning for pipelines, choosing the most cost effective trucking routes and safety issues for both equipment as well as employees. Different scenarios can be generated and compared, making this a very practical aspect to any logistics professional in the industry.

Modules on the actual process of refining oil into gas, including essential safety and troubleshooting aspects of the process, is a perfect match for 3D simulation developed by Designing Digitally, Inc. Employees will be more aware of the big picture and able to understand how each part of the process interacts to create the final product.
Oil spills, disasters and environmental clean up and protection are natural matches for online training in 3D. Learners can work though these issues in a virtual environment that is completely realistic both in the damages caused by a disaster and the actual options for and results of clean up operations.

Of course an online virtual training module that focuses in on distribution and sales of the gasoline produced by the oil refinery is yet another possible option. Having this series of 3D training modules available provides a comprehensive training series for all aspects of the industry. The professionals at Designing Digitally, Inc. are always happy to talk to those in the oil industry to determine how 3D virtual simulations can be incorporated into training programs.

The Real World Importance of 3D Training Simulations in the Power Industry

Working around electricity, natural gas, wind turbines and nuclear facilities poses a potential safety risk for anyone that is not 100% aware of safety, protocols and procedures to handle everything from basic repairs through to emergency situations. Training in classrooms and on the job will provide a good background for day to day work requirements, but for very high risk or potentially dangerous situations or for disaster types of events 3D simulations are incredibly effective. It is completely impossible to set up mock activities or scenarios that are comprehensive and realistic in traditional types of trainings, but 3D virtual trainings remove all barriers and allow designers to create amazingly accurate and realistic scenarios for employees and managers to work through.

Electrical Companies

New and experienced workers in the electrical industry will find 3D training simulation developed by the staff at Designing Digitally, Inc. highly instructive. These training modules can allow individuals to practice the correct methods and safety procedures when running new power lines or when troubleshooting problems on existing lines. The simulation allows the learner to actually move through the process in a 3D world, similar to playing a very high quality video or computer game. Accidents and mistakes can become learning experiences and learners can repeat the process as necessary to gain skills mastery. This will prove to be essential when there is need to change out a transformer in a safe and efficient fashion.

Natural Gas

Natural gas companies will be able to allow their workers to practice safely removing natural gas from the ground to tankers. These 3D simulations can incorporate all industry protocols and procedures for safety and efficiency. The simulations can also provide options for learning how to troubleshoot natural gas pipelines and to change out faulty gauges. Since this training is all done in a 3D browser based virtual world there is no risk to employees and no costly training mock ups that need to be maintained.

Nuclear Facilities

One of the biggest crisis events that can occur at a nuclear facility is a nuclear meltdown. Having a 3D training simulation that allows staff to experience a meltdown and how to effectively manage and control the plant or facility is a critical part of ongoing training. This type of training builds up confidence, competence and understanding and gives staff the ability to effectively respond to a crisis. Of course the scenario can also be developed to cover other aspects such as routine checks on the uranium and how to practice effective protocols for recording data and providing routine maintenance checks.

Wind Turbines

A 3D training scenario that allows staff to take a virtual tour of an actual working wind turbine is a great teaching and learning tool for new staff. This basic module could then move into more complex web-based training in 3D on troubleshooting problems with wind turbines and making repairs.

The more that staff that work in the power industry have the chance to learn about methods, emergency response, safety and protocols and procedures in 3D training simulations the more likely they are to make the right decision when they are out in the field. The game like feel to the training makes it highly entertaining and something that staff will look forward to year round.

Training using a variety of different options is always the best choice for any industry. Our professional staff at Designing Digitally, Inc. will be more than happy to talk with you about the 3D simulations that can be designed to meet your specific energy industry training needs.
