All systems developed by LSyM are delivered with a complete instructional design that guides the instructor and the trainee to achieve an optimal use of the equipment. Equally, all the necessary tools that allow an adequate follow-up and evaluation of each trainee are provided.
To use simulators as a new teaching tool could be overwhelming, especially for the instructors who are less computer savvy. Therefore, at LSyM we ensure a seamless transition from a conventional to the digital learning method.
Should you need any assistance, you can always call your assigned account manager, get in touch with our multilingual support team or use our 24/7 online tool Mantis, which was designed by our in-house team. You can report any detected issue during the use of the application, as well as request an implementation of a new functionalities or features to the simulator.
We help you to pre-set up all the settings and parameters on the simulation machine, so that you can start your journey instantly. However, our research has shown, that the more confident and experienced an instructor gets, the higher is his/hers need for simulator personalisation. One of our main advantages is that the majority of options are customisable, so our simulators grow with you.
To use simulators as a new teaching tool could be overwhelming, especially for the instructors who are less computer savvy. Therefore, at LSyM we ensure a seamless transition from a conventional to the digital learning method. We guide you through the whole learning process to ensure that you are a confident user, and continue our support during the entire time of the simulator usage. Our Theoretical Course provided with the simulators includes a large set of exercises, guiding the instruction process with visual messages and indications on screen as well as an illustrated manual.
Instructor's station is a workspace from where he/she supervises alumni's learning progress. This station will allow the instructor to perform all necessary actions with regards to the simulator learning. Depending on the premises and the company needs, such station can be integrated into simulator or be used as an independent station.
he instructor's Workstation software does not require an additional personal computer, but uses the same computer system that runs the simulator. This simplifies the hardware and software management of the simulator, since a centralised system does not rely on a distributed system, the probability of failure is reduced, thus simplifying the system considerably.
Required Hardware components:
This option permits instructor to be in a different physical space form the alumni. Such decision is more comfortable as an instructor can have a separate office as well as monitor multiple alumni at the same time.
Required Hardware components:
Power requirements: 200-250 VAC single phase 50 Hz.
Maximum power consumption: 4 amps (~1000W).
Our Software Solution was designed with a purpose to give maximum flexibility to the instructors, allowing them to adjust settings in order to achieve efficient and effective learning. The instructor uses a station (integrated or remote) to:
Before beginning with the practical training, there is a number of that instructors prepare beforehand.
Most simulators are used for the practical exercises only, however, more and more instructors appreciate all- in-one approach, where the Theoretical Module is part of the simulator. Almost all our machines offer a theoretical module however content vary depending on a machine.
Theoretical Course, should be used as a complementary tool in addition to the theory explained by the instructor. However, it covers the most important topics such as:
We offer a great flexibility, so each instructor can customise settings of the exercises according to his needs. He can define criteria such as:
Instructors have a complete freedom in designing the entire course. There is a number of blocks and exercises available to choose from. An instructor can decide not only which blocks should be included in the learning program, but also the order in which they should be completed.
The chosen course plan can be applied to all students or to be designed for each student individually. In addition, the whole course can be saved and applied to a different group of students in the following years.
DURING THE SIMULATOR PRACTICEIn order to make sure that alumni successfully absolve the course it is crucial for the instructor to ensure that that he/she could practice different skills during the adequate time.
When it comes to the exercises, it is important to experience various situations and practice different tasks. Therefore, we offer 140 learning blocks with over 700 exercises across 26 simulators. Each block is designed to gain necessary skills in specific area with different levels of difficulty. The blocks and exercises vary depending on the machine as each machine requires different skills and knowledge.
Practicing with simulators gives instructors a significant advantage when it comes to visibility. Our simulators offer a unique feature that permits instructors to monitor students in the real time as well as to review the completed exercise using a 360-degree view. This allows the instructor to see the whole environment at all the times. In this way instructor can get a better judgement of the quality of the performed exercise.
Our collaborative mode allows instructors to shorten time they spend per student as students perform joint exercises in the same virtual scenario at the same time. In this way, each of them can operate a different machine but work together to achieve a common goal. Such option allows to practise teamwork skills during the practical exercises in the real situations.
Instructors must ensure that alumni are prepared not just to operate machinery, but also to respond adequately under stress should a breakage or change in their environment occur. Our simulators offer means to teach alumni these skills, by allowing instructors to inject events, simulate failures and make changes in environment conditions.
Our database system stores all the information of each trainee and of advanced users, so that instructors can access this information at any times.
Instructor can take full control of the different tools from the instructor's console at any times. In this way he can prevent student to make certain actions or demonstrate how to do certain exercises.
POST EXERCISE ANALYSIS (DEBRIEFING)
In order to make sure that alumni successfully absolve the course it is crucial for the instructor to ensure that that he/she could practice different skills during the adequate time.
The Evaluation System also includes a powerful tool that allows the post-analysis (debriefing) of the exercises executed by the trainees. It is possible to visualize the repetition of the exercises automatically, having the possibility of moving forward, pause, rewind and even alter the playback in order to show different views of the scene.
It is very useful for the instructor to teach students showing what was done, and comment on the fly about the mistakes or successes achieved.
The database stores the user personal data, as well as a record of all activity performed, including evaluation reports and the all information necessary for the debriefing sessions. This allows to see information not only during the sessions but also later.
It is helpful when analysing skills acquired, student’s progress, average performance of the trainee as well as among the trainees, statistics, etc. In addition, our newest feature includes a camera that records not only the exercise but also alumni. This is very useful during the examinations done by the third parties.
Our Evaluation System was designed to demonstrate to the alumni their performance, in this way an instructor has a piece of evidence demonstrating the following information:

Our software, a functional and user-friendly tool, grounded on the Learning Methodology, was designed to benefit instructors and students. To meet our customer expectations, we constantly implement modifications based on congregated information. The conducted research is based on our customer’s feedback and allows us to be up-to-the-minute.
If you are an instructor or work in related to education institution, we would appreciate your contribution. Any feedback related to our Simulators or features you wish to see in a Machine Simulator.Feedback Form
