Process computers are finding more uses in the cement industry. The traditional applications are in process control. A novel approach is to utilize these same computers for training operating personnel. Appropriate process modeling can provide a realistic simulation of the operation of a plant. When a dynamic process model is executed in real time with controlling inputs and outputs (i.e., a process interface), the computer can be made to represent the plant equipment. And unlike the actual production facilities, this simulated plant can intentionally be made to fail in various ways in order to train operators how to react when the real plant fails. The design and operational aspects of the Process Simulator Trainer at the Fuller Company is described. It covers the scope of work currently anticipated, the system structure, and appearance. It also describes a simplified simulation model.
