Alternative to Table Top Exercises
Adopting a cost effective constructive simulation training system to replace table top exercises and at the same time ensure regulator integrity is maintained is the challenge before the Petroleum Industry.
Simulation technology has been used in the petroleum industry for many years. A computer-based constructive simulation training system brings a cost effective tool that would improve the way producers approach emergency preparedness and response. Corporate and Regional ERP’s along with municipal emergency management plans can all be simulated and integrated within a constructive simulation training system.
ePlan-GIS establishes communications and coordination procedures for mobilizing response personnel and agencies. This is accomplished through simple on-screen menus or dash boards coordinating the activities of industry responders, emergency services, local authorities, Provincial Health Services, government departments and all agencies that have a key role in providing an effective response.
ePlan-GIS can simulate emergency plans without having to do costly manpower intensive and time consuming table top exercises. Additionally, ePlan-GIS has a play back feature, the After Action Review (AAR) that allows for a review of the exercise for corrective training purposes. ePlan-GIS allows staff to control a large number of “entities” within the simulation. An entity can be a person, a vehicle or even a piece of equipment. When an “an emergency scenario” is created, all of the entities interact within the simulation, according to the objectives of the emergency plan. Once an emergency scenario has been designed and built, emergency planning staff can control the entities that manage their movement and interaction within the emergency simulation.
