AVEVA, a global leader in industrial software, driving digital transformation and sustainability, has announced the launch of AVEVA™ Unified Learning as part of AVEVA’s portfolio available on AVEVA Connect, common cloud platform. The new cloud-based employee development solution helps AVEVA customers advance industrial workers from novice to expert by using blended custom and generic experiential training modules, including AVEVA’s Process Competency Training, Pipeline Competency Training, and The Operations Excellence Group’s OEG Knowledge Library*.
Harpreet Gulati, Senior Vice President, Planning, Simulation and Optimisation Business, AVEVA commented, “Effective training programs are essential to help prevent industrial accidents and ensure safety, especially when the workforce is inexperienced or unaccustomed to new plant technologies. As the name suggests, AVEVA Unified Learning combines a set of development elements within one cloud-based platform so training managers can customise learning development to each member of their workforce wherever they are. Experiential learning can now be delivered in safe, simulation-based environments while workforce competence and operational excellence can be tracked at the same time.”
AVEVA Unified Learning promotes competency and consistency through experiential learning on a single platform, making it a one-of-a-kind offering at a time when businesses are focusing on improving skills to deal with rapidly changing business environments and an influx of new employees. Training leaders face significant challenges managing learning programmes across a diverse and dispersed workforce with varying skill levels in the absence of AVEVA Unified Learning. AVEVA enables customers to improve the learning experience and extract more value from their training investments by removing deployment barriers and simplifying programme management.
AVEVA Unified Learning closes the competency gap between a retiring workforce and the new generation of connected workers. Overall, employees are empowered to perform better in a shorter time, thanks to targeted eLearning, video content, and simulation-based learning programs.
Organisations benefit from global accessibility and scalability because AVEVA Unified Learning simulators are entirely cloud-based and delivered as Software-as-a-Service. Training delivered directly to each worker's device reduces costs, time, and energy expenditures, as well as the organisation's carbon footprint.
AVEVA Unified Learning provides access to AVEVA’s vast portfolio of training and simulation applications in a single hub on AVEVA Connect. It is licensed via AVEVA FLEX, a flexible subscription program designed to simplify license purchase, usage and management. The product leverages AVEVA’s digital twin technology for ongoing operational excellence including operator training simulators and 3D virtual reality environments, delivering these on the Cloud.
The launch of AVEVA Unified Learning responds to a growing demand for learning solutions aimed at a digitally native workforce. By 2030, the bulk of the workforce will be made up of Generations Y and Z, most of whom are only familiar with a digital-first, mobile-first world. For these digital natives, workplace technology is now a factor in the choice of job. Over 90% of Generation Z – people born after 1996 – say technology offered by an employer influences their job choice.
