Hardware: As option, GDS provides various control and monitoring consoles and similar hardware when realistic engine room environment is the objective of the requesting training institution.
Trainee Station: SERS software training panels (over 50) can be distributed to individual touch screen monitors. These panels are interactive GUI panels, which demonstrates the performance of the simulator for use in a training.
SERS Instructors Station: Instructors can monitor, change dynamic parameters, inject malfunctions or events, and measure the response time of the Trainee or evaluate overall training performance, hold debriefings with Instructor Tools.
UNIQUE ASSESSMENT FEATURES
o A text based training report generated and transmitted to the Instructor for each trainee for each training session.
o Debriefing Tool: Screen captures generated for each user action and recorded in a historic time order, allowing to monitor and display the complete flow of the trainee actions.
o Instructor station for monitoring the training: Reaction times to malfunctions are displayed and recorded for each trainee for objective assessment. Trainee cannot see the malfunction and must identify the source of the problem using tools provided.
o SERS allows Instructors to easily record and maintain the training records.
o SERS Assessment Editor and Assessment Application allow for grading students for specific training, setup allowed by the Instructor.
