ProSys and Mynah Partner on Operator Training

The partnership will combine simulation software with alarm management to help improve operator training for process industries.

With a reduction in technical know-how and people, human reliability has become an increasing concern in industry. This is punctuated within process industries that face mounting public pressures in the wake of catastrophic events.

Mynah Technologies and ProSys have decided to pool their respective talents in simulation-based training and alarm management to partner on operator training and certification services for process industries.

This partnership will combine Mynah’s Mimic Simulation Software and dynamic model engineering services with ProSys operations optimization and training services. Together, the companies will provide process industries with offerings for certifying operators and improving operations effectiveness.

“With ProSys’s knowledge of process engineering and controls and Mynah’s simulation platform and process modeling, we are now teamed to deliver operator training solutions that address today’s problems in the process industries,” said Dustin Beebe, president and CEO of ProSys. “Simulations allow us the opportunity to train operators for the operational situations they need most—critical modes of operation like startup, shutdown and process upsets. With this, we can train a new generation of operators without having to re-experience all of the incidents of the past 30 years.”

In addition to using the Mimic Simulation Software for training purposes, ProSys plans to use it for testing of alarm management within plants. ProSys will be able to use Mimic to better predict and eliminate errors in alarm management systems.
