Control room set-up
The simulator is used in instructor- operator mode. The instructor runs a simulator model and the operators/trainees operate on the same model. The Instructor supervises the training and can activate pre-defined training scenarios.
Each station runs in a stand-alone mode on a separate simulator model, independent of other stations. The instructor can log on each trainee station to supervise the training from the instructor station. Automatic training and assessment scenarios can be activated on each station.
Automatic Exercise and Assessment Tool
The K-Spice Exercise Manager enables the instructor to build automated exercises for evaluating the operator in an objective manner. With a user-friendly and intuitive interface the instructor can effectively configure, execute and document the training sessions, and manage the overall assessment of the students. Each exercise typically comprises of triggers, actions, and an assessment including reports. The triggers can be configured in many different
combinations (easy and advanced) that allow the instructor to define almost any type of student KPI or trigger action.
