Simulation Systems

IDS provide OTS solutions using the Honeywell UniSim Competency Suite, which uses high-fidelity thermodynamic modeling of your existing plant to achieve a realistic and reliable simulation.

Operator Training Simulators (OTS) train plant operators to run their facilities safely and efficiently. Since the number of competent and experienced operators available is shrinking, plants must hire and train replacements to properly operate and run their control systems.

Same Control
System Platform

Honeywell’s UniSim Competency Suite links process models with the same platform as your plant’s control system, supporting Honeywell, Invensys, Yokogawa, Emerson, Siemens, ABB, and many more. This gives the operator interface and control system logic the same look and feel as your plant’s system, providing for a realistic training environment.

Detailed Equipment

IDS provides simulators that accurately model your plant’s existing equipment, including simulation of hard panel switches and circuitry that most simulators ignore.

Advanced Simulation

With UniSim, you have the ability to start from predefined checkpoints, freeze, resume, speed up, slow down, roll back, and run different scenarios to train operators in all aspects of running your plant’s control system.


An instructor can initiate certain faults, and the system can watch how operators respond and grade them on their ability to take the correct course of action.
