Interactive 3D and Immersive Training for the Energy Market – Joe Cheben – Former Senior Engineering Associate at ExxonMobil
Demographics show that a large number of experienced individuals working in industry will retire over the next few years resulting in a severe knowledge and experience drain in the workforce. These experienced workers need to be replaced with highly skilled individuals. Conventional training systems will be put under a lot of pressure to get these new workers trained quickly while maintaining high safety performance and plant reliability. Normal classroom and “on-the-job” training are insufficient to get these new workers assimilated into the workforce in a timely manner. A 3D immersive training platform linked to a plant computer simulator is a major improvement to the way training is done. ExxonMobil Research Qatar and EON Reality Inc. partnered on a research project to develop this innovative patent pending training technology.
