Simutech Multimedia’s newest module will be set in a greenhouse environment and is ideal for electrical, maintenance and manufacturing professionals who want to learn more about advanced automation elements in industrial environments. The beta release of the new module will teach participants how to anticipate results occurring from changing temperatures, humidity and light.

Simutech Multimedia goes on the road this summer and fall!

For some of us, this winter has been rough. But here at Simutech Multimedia, we are looking ahead to really exciting events happening in the warmer months to come. We are so proud to announce that our CEO Samer Forzley has been invited to speak at THREE conferences this summer!

The first will be happening in Boston at LiveWorx 2019 from June 10-13.


Gamification and simulation used to train next generation of manufacturing workers

The new Simutech Training System provides users easier access to the product. All six modules can now be installed by a single click, and any future product updates will automatically download. Additionally, the end user will be able to manage his or her training in one place no matter where the training takes place, whether at work or home.

“The software is working out great. It’s worth making sure that our new maintenance people go through the programs and now it’s going to be a mandatory part of their training. I’ve seen the difference in the few people I’ve run through. The more practice I can get these new troubleshooters the better.”

A systematic approach to troubleshooting

The Simutech Training System is built around our 5-step systematic approach to electrical troubleshooting. Your professionals will first learn the fundamentals of the troubleshooting approach, followed by consistent, hands-on practice and skills maintenance using our simulation software.


Step 1: Observe behavior

Gather information, use your senses and list observations.


Step 4: Test

Perform tests to positively identify faulty component.


Step 2: Define problem area

Eliminate areas of the circuit that are working properly.


Step 5: Repair and confirm

Replace faulty component and check all features to ensure all faults have been repaired.


Step 3: Identify possible causes

Include every component in the problem area when identifying all possible causes of the malfunction.
