About Remedy Sim:

The Remedy Simulation Group is the new identity of Pulse Anatomical Model Company, Inc. We decided to rebrand our contract manufacturing business and retail business starting in 2015. While both sides of our business grow, we wanted to keep things simple for you with a new organization. Clinical simulation is a crazy busy job and keeping products you need front and center is our goal. All of our products are developed by combining industrial design with biomedical engineering to create winning solutions. Our models will always have a realistic physical component that can be touched, cut, poked, prodded, and felt in some manner. Medicine will always require interaction with a patient and being able to offer that same high level of interaction with our products is our goal. If you have an idea for a new product, we can walk you through the process of licensing your idea and selling it through our dedicated webstore and network of distributors. If your lab uses a special home made product, we can also build that just for you. This can free up valuable time to develop new products to meet the growing need all organizations have.

At Remedy Simulation Group we believe medical simulation plays an important role in the future of healthcare. Remedy provides you with two distinct ways to interface with our company: simulation training products and contract manufacturing. Our innovative products help students studying in the medical disciplines to develop important and necessary skills by providing tactile, realistic scenarios for learning. Contract manufacturing services are available to anyone looking for assistance with the production and sale of a product. At Remedy Simulation Group we look forward to working with you to Improve the Standard of Practice!

If you are a simulation provider or even another modeling company we offer contract manufacturing services. Our facility has grown from the famous closet in our first office to a new 3000 sqft facility that has room for expansion. The processes we use vary by project and we have the ability to integrate new materials and manufacturing methods as needed. We can work with an idea or duplicate and existing production line. Finally we can also help walk through the process of licensing your idea, manufacturing the product, and selling it through our dedicated web store. The website suggests that “Ivy”, Remedy’s first nurse designed IV Pad product is coming soon!

Clemson University Utilizes VR Simulations to Train for Electrical & Manufacturing Industries

vr simulation manufacturing

South Carolina GSA Business recently covered the VR Simulation Training taking place at the Clemson University Center for Workforce Development. VR Oculus devices are providing electrical and manufacturing students the opportunity to safely practice new skills before entering more dangerous work scenarios. Sound familiar? My belief is that simulation will quickly become an integral part of all educational practices, from dealing with hot oil friers to office politics.

GSA Business Article Excerpt:

“No longer limited to video games, the simulations being developed at the Clemson University Center for Workforce Development are helping students across the country learn the skills that employers need in a modern manufacturing plant. One such simulation puts the user in a warehouse environment. The participant uses a keyboard or joystick to move around the virtual warehouse to identify safety violations. The virtual program gives feedback throughout the process.

The simulation gives a type of hands-on experience for the user without exposing them to the real hazards of a manufacturing setting.

Sabarish V. Babu, assistant professor in the School of Computing at Clemson, said: “Virtual simulations allow for interactive feedback. You receive instruction on how to actually use each instrument or program, then there’s an interactive, guided practice, with feedback as you’re performing the task.”

The virtual reality helps the student to safely practice their electrical testing skills while avoiding potential dangers that are present in the live labs, Isbell said. Once the students are comfortable with the virtual exercises they can then move to a live setting where an instructor can oversee the live work.

Dr. Anand Gramopadhye, dean of the College of Engineering and Science, said virtual reality is an innovative way to widen the pipeline that supplies the highly skilled workers the nation needs to be competitive.

“Manufacturing remains key to prosperity in our state and across the nation,” he said. “By teaching the skills needed in the next-generation workforce, our curriculum is helping shore up the middle class and putting families on the road to success.”

Ford Trains New Employees in Simulated Factory

Ford.com All Rights Reserved – Used with Editorial Permission.

Ford now trains new US-based factory employees in a simulated manufacturing plant. This ensures new workers are better prepared to work on the assembly line, increase training speeds, reduce employee attrition and improve manufacturing quality and safety.

 

From Ford.com:

Ford’s Flat Rock Assembly Plant is training its 1,400 new hires using a simulated factory, helping to prepare workers for the manufacturing front lines before the first U.S.-built Fusion emerges from the facility this fall. 

To prepare Flat Rock’s newest hires for Fusion production, the simulated factory was introduced to provide hands-on training in a real-world environment. The simulated factory allows workers to master the tasks they may be performing on the line, whether simple jobs like tightening nuts and bolts or more complex ones like connecting brake lines or fitting weather stripping. Before, new hires moved directly from classroom training to the assembly line.

“The simulated factory provides workers with a much smoother transition to the assembly line, and the net benefit to the company is improved quality,” said Aris Janitens, manager, launch planning and workforce readiness, Ford Motor Company. “This best-in-class training process – initially developed at Louisville Assembly Plant – has been so successful, it is now considered our global standard and company-wide best practice, and will be rolled out to other plants worldwide.” Flat Rock is the second plant in the world to institute this training process.

Each activity is timed to give trainees a sense of how quickly the assembly line moves and how quickly they are expected to perform their duties. When working on the line, each team member must perform his or her job within a specific amount of time to keep the line running smoothly.

The simulated factory training can accommodate 50 trainees in each eight-hour session with a 5:1 trainee-to-instructor ratio. Workers train on 10 stations – one every 40 minutes – including electrical connectors, engine build-up, brake line and radiator hose install, and DC electric tools. Workers also receive one-on-one training from hourly instructors, as well as instruction on safety procedures, tooling and operator instruction sheets.

“Before simulated factory training, you could always tell when it was someone’s first week on the line,” said Tim Young, plant manager, Flat Rock Assembly Plant. “They were a little unsteady and unsure of what they needed to do, and it usually resulted in having to stop the line multiple times that first week.”

Young says the investment in workers is really paying off. “Now, our new hires are able to jump right in on the line without causing any delays or quality issues, and do so in a safe manner.”

The hands-on training has also helped newly hired employees determine early on if their position is not a great fit. Of the more than 1,000 employees trained, about 50 have decided to pursue other career options.

“We have found employees truly appreciate a realistic job preview. Some workers have realized through the training that they are not interested in working on an assembly line after all,” said Anna Gedman, human resources manager, Flat Rock Assembly Plant. “We want the most committed and capable workers helping to produce our vehicles, so learning this within the first week of training rather than three months down the road is beneficial for everyone involved.”  

Without a doubt, it is only a matter of time before simulation is integrated into all industries! Learn more at Ford.com
