Matching Simulator Type to Training Objectives

While every training program has unique needs, this section serves as a roadmap, highlighting where various simulation solutions truly shine. Each type excels in effectively delivering training at different levels. By understanding these strengths, you'll gain valuable insights into how simulations can supplement and augment your existing program, ultimately optimizing its effectiveness. 

This table provides a general overview, and the training needs analysis will remain your compass in selecting the most suitable simulation type for your specific program. However, by familiarizing yourself with the general capabilities of each solution, you'll be well-equipped to envision how simulations can elevate your training and transform your trainees. 


Simulation Type 

Best Delivery on General Topics 


Physical Simulations 

Procedural skills for tactile experience 

High cost for complex scenarios 

Computer-Based Trainers 

Repetitive skills 

Low immersion and may not be suited for complex skills 

Projection Based Simulators 

Blend between virtual and tactile experiences 

Requires dedicated space 

Virtual Reality 

Soft skills and complex decision-making 

Motion sickness in some users 

Augmented Reality 

High fidelity virtual and tactile experiences 

High initial investment cost 

Hybrid Simulators 

Multifaceted training environments 

Requires integration of multiple technologies. May be complex to setup and manage
