Training in VR implies saving time as operators prepare themselves in a faster manner to solve incidents. It also means saving on material and personal costs: it avoids having to move or travel and it is a safe method to gain experience without any workplace accidents. Thanks to simulations, workers can learn to solve complicated tasks before having to perform them in the workplace, therefore avoiding exposure to any risks. With all this, the learning curve and the know-how transfer of the employees is accelerated, as having a first-hand experience helps in better understanding why the systems act as they do.
Moreover, it allows you to monitor the processes, reviewing each of the operations performed by the operators offering a control of the procedures. This is of special interest to understand what mistakes are made, try to get employees to detect them and perform the tasks correctly, measuring with high precision the productivity and efficiency of each operator.
VR training provides greater motivation for workers, since it is an incentive for training. Unlike traditional knowledge training through books or procedural manuals, VR training simulates realistic experiences allowing users to have a personal experience, further motivating and stimulating the training.
Companies such as Renault and DAM, or institutional organizations such as the Catholic University of Valencia (UCV) and the Generalitat Valenciana (GVA), have relied on our experience to train their apprentices through virtual reality.
