Forest Industry Products
Modern forestry equipment is increasingly complex, costly, and difficult
to operate productively. In addition, there is increasing public support
for better forest practices and improved workplace safety, making
operator certification a reality in some geographic areas. As a result,
proper operator training has become a priority.
But in the world of heavy equipment, training simulation is
something new and most products today are complex "turnkey" systems with
real operator controls, multiple displays, dedicated computers, and even
a motion platform. As a result, the price
tag can rival the cost of real iron!
And that is why we are working with leading OEMs, their dealers,
equipment owner/operators, and training professionals, to
pioneer a new kind of product called Personal Simulator designed for set up on
your Personal Computer (PC)!
Simlog's better idea
We believe that it's time to look again at the training simulator
idea, but in a brand new, cost-effective way to
complement, not replace, real seat-time. That's because sooner
or later, people must be training at the controls of real
equipment. (After all, no one gets paid to do simulated work!)
Finally, there's truly cost-effective simulator-based value, whether you're a training professional or an owner/operator of heavy equipment!
