DuPont Operator Training Simulators (OTS) and Solutions
Operator training for STRATCO® Alkylation and MECS® Sulfuric Acid Technologies
Ask any operations manager what separates their best operators from the pack and you’ll get the same answer: knowledge and confidence. The best operators know what to do and when to do it, with confidence that is honed by years of experience and deep process knowledge.
But cost pressures, employee churn, and the threat of the “boomer retirement wave” are challenging companies to find new ways to train and develop their teams more quickly than ever. Operations teams have to turn good operators into great operators in years, not decades.
To help our customers solve this problem, DuPont has developed a suite of Operator Training Simulators (OTS) and Operator Training Programs. Using world-class technology and instructors with decades of industrial experience, we deliver high-impact training that translates to faster skills development, better long-term skills retention and deeper process understanding than conventional methods.
Each product combines DuPont subject matter expertise with the DuPont world-class training and safety culture. Our training simulators are built on our proprietary dynamic simulator engine (TMODS™) and can be fully customized to match plant configuration , conditions, compositions, control schemes, safety interlocks and user interfaces. Each DuPont OTS product is:
