3D Simulations for Risk Training

  1. 1. NATO MSG 113 Workshop Genoa 15>17 April 2012 Risk Training in 3D Virtual Construction Yards A 3D Risk Training Simulation Mattia Crespi Q
  2. 2. New learning paradigms! From books to tutorials… Q
  3. 3. Q
  4. 4. Why are 3D simulations ideal for Risk Training? • They are safe! • Create unlimited hazards. • Synchronous & Collaborative Training. • Cheaper than real life. • They can run on web. Q
  5. 5. Context: Teaching Risk Management in Construction Yards. Q
  6. 6. Client Request Make a training solution that would: Reduce Training costs. Raise Courses Participation. Raise learning performance. Enable new, more efficient learning methods. Q
  7. 7. User Target • • • • Construction workers. Architects. Engineers. Safety specialists. Q
  8. 8. What we focused on. Q
  9. 9. Make it idiot proof! Q
  10. 10. Don’t force 3D! Some things are better done in 2D! Q
  11. 11. Mix 2D Learning Tools with a 3D Immersive Environment to enhance the Learning Experience. Q
  12. 12.  Monitor responses and analytics.  Validate the simulation as a testing tool. Q
  13. 13. The Solution: Virtual Construction Yards. Q
  14. 14. What happens in VCYS • Find risks. • Evaluate risks. • Respond and Act on danger. Q
  15. 15. An experiment in training methodology. Q
  16. 16. A risk free environment to simulate hazards Q
  17. 17. Monitoring data effectively for measuring learners response Q
  18. 18. How to validate it? 800 learners tested • Test learners awareness indicators before and after: – Doing the standard course, classroom + documents and self assessment test on paper. – Doing the 3D learning simulation course with simultaneous assessment. Q
  19. 19. Results The concurrent nature of the 3D training simulation allows people to experience real life nuances of team interaction, replicating not just the environment, but the experience as well. Formedil has reported an increased effectiveness of training, with better results in terms of … Q
  20. 20. Learning Time 50% lower than usually reported !!! Q
  21. 21. Persistence of complex procedures  User tested on specific complex procedures with tests, after 30 days from the official test.  3D simulation learners scored on average 32% more than standard learners. Q
  22. 22. Assimilation of risks conditions Test Failure rate. 35% lower than standards learners. Q
  23. 23. Costs Reduction Formedil has been training about 800 users a year inside their 3D virtual simulation environment. The Company estimates they saved: in 1 year, on 800 students: € 35,000 in travel costs € 40,000 staff costs € 18.000 location costs Q
