Chemicals, Oil & Gas Industry Challenges

The Chemicals and Oil & Gas Industries face several challenges. Human error causes nearly 80 to 90% of all industrial mishappenings and unplanned downtime which affects employees, customers and the company’s financial health.

As per reports, industrial manufacturers face approx. 800 hours of annual unplanned outages costing them an estimated $50 billion annually. Equipment failure due to improper maintenance is the cause of 42 % of this unplanned downtime which results in excessive maintenance, repair, and equipment replacement.

To remain competitive, companies need to operate safely, reliably and efficiently. For that, a highly trained and competent workforce is required. Most workers are practical learners, acquiring 70% of their skills and knowledge from experiential learning. But, conventional training approaches & On-the-Job Training (OJT) programs are expensive, logistically difficult and also involve risks.

Augmented Reality Solutions

Augmented Reality (AR) technology brings you efficient and cost-effective psychophysics-based solutions to solve your problems. Using AR-Powered Tablets, plant equipment is simulated inside industrial classrooms to train employees. On-the-Job Assistance using Augmented Reality technology through Tablets or Wearables enables digital overlays over the real environment with visual instruction and interactive guidance.

Experiential Learning

Augmented Reality Training Simulators deliver immersive, scenario-based, experiential learning. This enables engineers and technicians to learn critical skills, test and evaluate themselves to handle high risk equipment and tools without even entering the Process Plant or Shop-Floor but inside an immersive, safe and zero-consequence virtual environment.

Gamified

AR education makes learning fun! Well-designed games motivate and imbue players with clear goals, a sense of reward and fulfilment, encouraging them to persist until those goals are achieved. Applying motivational power to non-game contexts is Gamification which makes learning interesting and easier than ever.

Quick Results

AR transforms your employees into competent, confident individuals, inheriting decades of knowledge and experience in a short duration saving years of training time. Latest study indicates that AR implementation has immediately increased the Operations and Maintenance efficiencies by 40-65% and in some cases up to 90%.

Plant & Equipment Maintenance - Training:

Our Maintenance Training Simulators (AR-MTS) using AR powered Tablets, Augments the Immersive Digital-Twin of the sophisticated Plant-Equipment system right inside the classroom. AR-MTS enables virtual hands-on-experience to efficiently troubleshoot and repair the sensitive machinery. Training includes picking the right parts and tools aided by step-by-step instructions from Standard Maintenance Procedures (SMP) along with internal views.

AR-MTS enables safe & effective training of high-risk maintenance activities whether it is Predetermined, Proactive maintenance such as Predictive & Preventive maintenance or Reactive such as Emergency & Corrective maintenance.

HSE & Emergency Response - Assistance:

The effective execution of Emergency Response Plan (ERP) is considerably affected by various physiological & psychological Human factors. Possible overlooking of procedures and inefficient time management at mission critical scenes is intolerable. Our ERP Assistance AR-Module using Wearables can maximize ERP effectiveness by speeding up the team’s response time through smart-instructions using voice, text and infographics which ensures no overlooking of procedures.
