Simulator Solutions for the Industry
A simulator is a smart solution for many purposes
A simulator is the perfect tool for product development, testing, training and product support. A well designed simulator solution caters for the entire life cycle of the product.
For developing and testing new products, simulators bring new possibilities. You can develop and test control systems before building prototypes. The simulator based design environment brings the future machine on the designer’s desk top.
Training simulators are cost effective solutions for organising training for end users and maintenance. Additionally, it is a great tool for marketing future models.
Training Simulators for the Industry
Many global work machinery manufacturers have partnered with Creanex to design and implement training simulator solutions for their machines.
What are the benefits of training simulators for machine manufacturers?
- A cost effective solution for organising training for end users and maintenance in a controlled environment.
- An easy way to set up introduction and work technique training
- A great tool for marketing future products
A training simulator is a virtual environment, in which you can practice using the work machine as authentically as possible. Simulator solutions are always case specific and depend on the intended use.
The authentic feeling is achieved by careful planning and implementing. Important aspects to take into consideration are drivability, easy introduction and manufacturing feasibility. Using the customer’s own design language and colors we build unique brand enhancing solutions.
Tools for Product Development and Testing
Product Development and Testing of Control Systems – Quality Assurance and Safety
In addition to training, simulator solutions can be adapted for the product development and testing of machines. Creanex has created a product development and testing environment for control systems in cooperation with established manufacturers of work machinery. The sooner you can ensure the function of each subsystem and its compatibility with other subsystems, the lower the development costs will be and the shorter the product’s time-to-market.
The automation of testing
In addition to manual testing, our system also enables the automation of testing. Automation means the description of test cases using test scripts. Automated test cases can always be repeated exactly the same and the test system generates information on the success of the test and the related measurements for later use.
Simulator-aided product development and testing gives completely new possibilities to develop operations. A unique feature is the possibility to freely and safely develop and test the control system of a machine without waiting for the prototype to be completed. The simulator-based development environment brings the machine to be tested onto the designer’s table.
The customer saves on working hours and costs, and gains in safety. By virtually testing the control systems, you can save expenses in both product development and after-marketing. Later on, the test environment can be used for quality assurance of new product versions.
We are actively developing both testing and the tools used for it. In addition, our services cover the planning of test cases and consulting for the planning of test management.
TAWIx software developed by Creanex helps you to manage the automatisation of testing. The tester can use TAWIx for loading test cases and test instructions, running scripted tests and reporting test results into the test management system.
COMBINING EXPERIENCE AND KNOWLEDGE
RESULTS THE BEST SOLUTIONS.
Simulator Solution Design and Implementation
We always base the simulator design on what the simulator will be used for. We use our experiences of past successful solutions and adapt them to new environments and new implementations. Simulators are comprehensive projects that include mechanics, electronics and display set ups, and even sound systems.
We always take into consideration
- The intended work space and method of use: the simulator can be installed on a mobile platform, on a desk top or be mounted to the floor
- The brand and design language of the customer
- Ergonomics of use
- Display and sound systems
We make simulators easy for the customer
We at Creanex are professionals in simulator design. Our customers are professionals in their own field and experts with their own machines. This is why close cooperation is integral for successful simulator projects.
The customer together with the Creanex team specifies requirements and technical specifications. Customer feedback is also essential when ensuring that the feeling of the controls is authentic. The manufacture has a significant role also during the preparation and design of the training content. Creanex will provide the customer with great tools and best practices for achieving the best training content design.
The best solutions stem from close cooperation and lead to optimal results.
