Sinapse Print Simulators has been awarded the prestigious InterTech™ Technology Award, sponsored by Printing Industries of America, for its Distributed Learning Management System (DLMS).
DLMS is a Cloud-based extension to printing simulators that makes them easier to manage and evaluate the progress of large numbers of trainees across single or multiple sites. The language independent system provides automatic analysis of training sessions with reports that track results by time, production cost, user report ranking and related benchmarking . It allows courses to be set up for trainees wherever they are, and to review results for groups or individuals. The information can be accessed from anywhere on the corporate/educational network.
Making resources and data available on a Cloud-based, language independent platform allows instructors to automatically analyze and compare student training results. This removes many barriers to local training and remote supervision because trainees can work from any site in any language (e.g. Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, German) while the trainer can make remote evaluation and supervision from another site in any language (e.g. English, French, Portuguese …).
Two examples of how the DLMS is used to review and evaluate multi site and multi-language training results:
- One of North America's largest printers is currently using this system in over 40 of its factories using Sheetfed, Heatset and Flexographic simulators that are supervised by only two centralized trainers using DLMS.
- Another example is the recent WorldSkills Offset competition in Leipzig, Germany, where contestants from 12 countries used simulators in 10 languages with all the scores given to the judges in English.
InterTech judges commented that DLMS "impressed us with the ability to manage multiple different languages from one administrator ", "takes learning to the next level", and "as the industry evolves the use of the DLMS and simulators will only become more important."
