Kurt Fichtman, director of sales for Technology Transfer Services (Booth 4180), showcased his company’s internet-based Odesie training software for maintenance personnel (http://www.techtransfer.com).
“The technology is geared to address the training expectations of the modern, younger workforce, ages 18 to 40,” Fichtman said. “We’ve built the simulator to accommodate this generation’s familiarity with—and preference for—e-learning, social media and online gaming.”
Indeed, the demo virtual world on display, which replicates an actual Walgreens warehousing facility in Florida, features an illustrated human avatar that the user directs to perform specific maintenance and inspection tasks. The training simulation can be customized for any type of materials handling equipment—including AGVs, forklifts, AS/RS, conveyors and other mechanical equipment, said Fichtman.
“It can also be completely customized to exactly replicate the floor plan, layout and equipment specific to a user’s facility, or as a standard, off-the-shelf virtual world that includes the types of equipment used in a DC,” Fichtman added.
“Obviously, nothing takes the place of hands-on training, but when it comes to engaging the upcoming workforce, no other training offering out there is tailored to how this generation prefers to learn,” he concluded.
ProMat 2011 will be held March 21 - 24, 2011 at McCormick Place South in Chicago. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry.
