VR Training and Workflow Design


Explore how we help businesses and universities deploy VR to accelerate learning and improve operating efficiency.

VR Safety Training

VR can improve EHS training outcomes for supply chain and logistics companies as it offers a “safe place to fail” because you can construct virtual hazardous situation scenarios for port, dock, warehouse, and driver personnel without interrupting site operations. This includes workplace orientation, first aid, fire safety, environmental safety, equipment safety, and more. 

VR-enabled EHS training can help improve situational awareness and the responsiveness of employees, resulting in a better work environment. Because VR leads to higher learning efficacy (because the training is “experienced”) workers will be better trained and can take control of an unexpected situations quickly. This helps companies reduce financial loss, risk and injury or death to workers.

VR MRO Training

VR can also improve MRO training effectiveness and cost savings for supply chain and logistics companies. VR-enabled training on digital twins (virtual models) of ships, lift trucks, overhead cranes, and other materials-handling equipment means that operators and repair technicians can practice MRO tasks anywhere, anytime without the actual equipment being physically present.

VR doesn’t replace hands-on learning – it accelerates it because operators and technicians can spend tens (or hundreds) of hours of virtual task training in advance of laying hands on the actual equipment. A VR practice session can take just 20-30 minutes and be can be self-directed or instructor-led by SMEs anywhere in the world. Pilot programs by companies such as DHL, BMW and others have shown improvements in productivity and picking efficiency of 15-25%, while decreasing training time and operational mistakes by nearly 50%.

VR Workflow & Site Design

VR can be used to aid in the development of logistics infrastructure design, by allowing multiple stakeholders to design and simulate assets without the need for large up-front costs. VR is increasingly being embraced for its ability to simulate infrastructure layout planning and equipment operation.

Virtual simulations can help remote groups collaborate to test and adapt immersive virtual prototypes with incredible accuracy. From a single warehouse to an entire distribution center complex, we can help support the design process to save time and money. Companies like Hyundai are already using VR to simulate and plan plant design before investing in actual construction and configuration.
