With over 100,000 operator training sessions analyzed we know that less than 50% of experienced operators can recall the procedure to respond to an emergency machine failure. We can deliver over 90% pass rates through Immersive Technologies’ proven training solutions.
Mining operations adopting autonomous systems need to train a large number of personnel in a relatively short period of time. Autonomous mining operations using traditional training methods report as low as 15% retention of knowledge among trainees and inconsistent field training. The integration of our solutions are proven to increase effectiveness, deliver consistent training and reduce human error.
Machine availability is an ongoing challenge in the mining industry. Poor operator behaviors and operational practices such as abusive shifting, engine overspeed and brake abuse contribute to a loss in production while machines are down. Reactive maintenance is an inefficient way to address fleet availability and companies are more likely to suffer from heightened maintenance costs, longer periods of unplanned equipment downtime and lost mine productivity.
Tires represent a significant expense in a mining operation and are a powerful area for cost containment. Maximizing tire life increases machine availability and proactively addresses issues like global tire shortages. Immersive Technologies has worked with major OEMs and mining operations around the globe to deliver a mean 10.4% increase in mining truck tire life using Advanced Equipment Simulator based operator training programs.
Immersive Technologies’ simulation based training is a key element of equipment operator training programs around the world. Immersive Technologies’ training solutions are designed to develop the most skilled workforce and deliver quantified business improvements.
Immersive Technologies offers mining operations a training model that ensures high levels of staff readiness and operational improvement, while taking advantage of a range of technologies to ensure the most cost effective solution and high trainee throughput. This is done via blending eLearning, Instructor Led Training, Medium and High Fidelity Simulators, with customized content and curriculum to meet the needs of specific operations.
Mine sites introducing remote operation technologies find that operators require a new set of skills to operate efficiently. Training solutions from Immersive Technologies give remote equipment operators the skills and understanding to transition from traditional operation to remote operation quickly; minimising impact to production and ensuring that machines remain in operation for longer periods.
We know that equipment performance is heavily dependent on operator skill, knowledge and attitude. Our unique data analytics based approach ensures our customers focus on the right issues that will deliver the highest returns. We work closely with mining customers and OEM’s to ensure the technology is properly integrated and quantified results are achieved.
