Goals

  • A new, scalable and efficient method to onboard and train operators
  • Minimize costs and accelerate delivery of new programs.


Challenges

  • BASF needed to make the training system as intuitive as possible for new recruits, so that they could safely manage complex chemical processes.


Solutions 

  • AVEVA™ XR para Training.
  • AVEVA™ Operator Training Simulator.


Results

  • More than 600 operators trained each year.
  • AVEVA XR for Training is intuitive for new recruits.
  • Virtual training has benefits in sustainability since simulating chemical processes saves energy and raw materials


“We found that AVEVA's virtual reality training environment offered us unique advantages. We could create an accurate virtual training environment that allows teams to not only learn the basic procedures and processes they needed to follow, but also understand the consequences of their actions in a fully immersive simulation...”
