Vancouver, BC, June 2, 2010 — NGRAIN, a leading provider of interactive 3D equipment simulation solutions that maximize the effectiveness of training programs and maintenance support systems, today announced the latest version of its award-winning 3D simulation production software, NGRAIN® Producer 4.1. Designed for non-programmers with no 3D graphics experience, Producer is used worldwide to develop training programs and maintenance support materials that provide personnel with the ability to examine equipment and the inter-relationship of parts while learning key maintenance procedures. With Producer 4.1, users can take advantage of enhanced rotation, cross sectioning and constraints capabilities, including new animation and security features, to design compelling and interactive 3D simulations.
“With Producer, organizations can cost effectively produce and update 3D simulations that accelerate learning and improve comprehension of complex technical information,” said Paul Lindahl, Chief Executive Officer, NGRAIN. “3D simulations created with Producer are proven to improve personnel performance in the field and help to ensure procedures are performed correctly and safely, the first time.”
Producer 4.1 is conformant with SCORM 2004 (3rd Edition), and is ideal for trainers interested in increasing classroom throughput, reducing project costs associated with the acquisition and repair of hard trainers, and elevating student knowledge and retention of complex systems information. Unlike other 3D tools, Producer is designed for non-programmers. Microsoft® Office users with no 3D graphics experience can learn how to use Producer in less than two days and can update course material as needed – protecting the long-term investment in training materials. Organizations across the Canadian and United States militaries currently use NGRAIN Producer to create 3D simulations that increase first-time-right performance by more than 20 percent.
“Finding a balance between decreasing project costs and ensuring technicians are supported with the information they need to perform to their maximum capability in the field is a common challenge,” said Arnold van den Hoeven, Director, Canadian Defence, NGRAIN. “Our solutions are designed to reduce the time it takes students to become familiar with complex equipment, helping to eliminate the need for numerous hard trainers and increase training throughput. Integrating NGRAIN’s 3D simulations in courseware encourages first-time-right performance and helps to turn novices into experts in a matter of days.”
“It simply doesn’t make sense to keep aircraft grounded and stall training when tools such as NGRAIN’s can help us to train technicians efficiently,” said Lieutenant Andy Campbell, IT lead of the Advanced Distributed Learning Section, United States Coast Guard. “3D simulations give our personnel the time they need to learn and practice maintenance procedures. And with Producer, we can quickly create and update those 3D simulations ourselves, without any programming or coding.” For more information visit www.ngrain.com.
