SIMULATION MANAGER SOFTWARE

Document performance and capture data with the Simulation Manager.

If you want to accurately document the performance of multiple operators in a secure way or capture data from multiple simulators in a single location, you will need the Simulation Manager.

Simulation Manager Software

When used on a stand-alone basis, personal simulators save simulation results data as files on your PC - a separate file for each simulator session. Files are tagged with a date and time, but not a person's name. These files are also accessible by anyone working on that computer.

If you want to accurately document the performance of multiple operators in a secure way or capture data from multiple simulators in a single location, you will need the Simulation Manager. Using the Simulation Manager, you can:

  • Create a unique user name and password for each user of the simulator.

  • Save all simulation results in a database, with performance data indexed by user. This is especially helpful in a simulator lab, where the data generated by each simulator needs to be saved in a single database file.

  • Restrict access to simulation results by assigning users to categories such as students, instructors and administrators. For example, a student can only view his or her simulator results, while an instructor can review the results of all students.

  • Group users into "classes." In this way, if you are using the same PC to host several simulators, you can authorize different classes to use different simulators.

  • Secure the use of the simulator. Only people with valid user names and passwords can use the simulator.

  • Enable people off-site to review the simulation results, using a free file viewer.

 

Each simulator operates by default in a single-user mode, but multi-user mode can be enabled using a special unlock key.

SUMMARY OF SINGLE - VS. MULTI-USER MODES

With simulation manager,
simulators in multi-user mode

  • Thanks to your user account login name and password, the Personal Simulator "knows" who you are.

  • All simulation results are saved as entries in the same database, indexed by user.

  • Off-site monitoring of simulation results is easy. Just have the onsite people pass along the single database file, and then use a free file viewer to browse that database.

  • Simulation results are confidential. For example, a Student user can only review his/her simulation results, but an Instructor can review the simulation results of all the Students.

  • Simulator use is secure. Only people with valid login names and passwords can use the simulator.

No simulation manager,
simulators in single-user mode

  • The Personal Simulator does not know who you are.

  • Simulation results are saved in the form of individual files with just the date and time.

  • Off-site monitoring of simulation results is difficult. The onsite people must pass along all the results files, and each one must be viewed individually using a web browser.

  • Anyone can review anyone's simulation results by browsing the Results files.

  • Anyone can use the simulator.
