Honeywell announced that it has signed a memorandum of understanding
with Virthualis srl, an engineering and research firm focused on improving
decision making in the design and implementation of safety, to develop a 3D
simulation solution to improve operator training and plant safety.
Under the agreement, Virthualis’ 3D visualization
technology, called MindSafe—including modules for safety management, accident
analysis, and risk assessment—will be linked to Honeywell’s existing UniSim
simulation tool, providing a holistic virtual environment that can be used to
efficiently design, analyze, and verify plant operations, as well as to prepare
operations teams for safe, reliable, and efficient operations.
