Training staff in running an LNG plant and control room is serious stuff. But most training is, otherwise all you need is casual advice! For all the care that goes into developing training to avoid risk and run equipment optimally, the same care and attention needs to be paid to the training tools and materials themselves. Manuals and tools used for training and kept for later reference must be easy to use, provide an ongoing resource for the user and create a positive impression. Training is an activity that can enhance or erode a company's internal brand. Done well, training contributes to a positive employee culture. Part of doing it well is creating a good first impression and following it up with tools that make the training easier, for the staff member and for the trainers. Collaborative editing, linking design files to databases and xml linking are some of the ways we simplify the complexity and get great results without blowing the budget.
