Whether you need to hire, train or evaluate, with a Volvo Simulator you can do it all, and without needing to take a machine out of production. Volvo Simulators use the latest technology to take operator development to the next level.
Volvo Simulators look and behave just like real machines, combined with advanced features to support evaluation and development. By working with the very best tools, instructors are better equipped to help operators meet the high demands placed on them in today’s construction industry.
Built using actual data from Volvo machines and equipped with authentic controls, Volvo Simulators accurately replicate specific workplace conditions, including site setup and fleet configuration.
Operators get real-time feedback on their performance through easy-to-understand graphs, which can focus on specific areas, for example fuel consumption and safety.
Based on criteria including productivity, fuel efficiency, wear and tear and safety, the system gives operators a total score on each exercise they complete.
Once an exercise is complete the system provides insights on operator performance and areas for improvement, through simple charts.
Built-in tutorials provide guided information to help operators improve at each exercise.
Instructors can choose between using a predefined program or create a tailor-made path using the Operator Performance System.
Connect multiple simulators to a single network, which can be monitored from a computer or mobile device using the Operator Performance System. Instructors can observe students and prepare training paths without needing to occupy an actual simulator.
Volvo Simulators track a multitude of data and come with a web interface to help analyze it. This powerful tool allows to easily evaluate performance and monitor the progress of an individual or group of operators. Data can be exported for in-depth analysis.
Are your operators the best they can be?
“Our best operator tried the articulated hauler simulator and we were surprised when he didn’t get a great score.”
In this example from a worksite in Europe, the operator used the parking brake instead of the load and dump brake function. It was incorrect machine use adding wear and tear and would have been almost impossible to identify simply by watching someone operate a real machine.
Who is the best person for the job?
”We had no time to train operators, so we hired operators already trained to the level we needed.”
In North America, Volvo Simulators have been used to improve the quality of new hires, used to screen operators during the recruitment process.
Who would benefit from training?
“I want to ensure time and money on training is spent wisely.”
Assessing who needs training, and what type of training, can be a challenge. With Volvo Simulators identifying operator training requirements is easy and effective.
Is training working?
“I want to validate the value of training.”
Easily justify the return on investment gained from training with Volvo Simulators. Once training is completed, improvement metrics allow the easy review of training output and results.
The extra screen can be used to show an additional perspective, such as a third person view.
